Cuboidal Cells

Cuboidal cells are a type of epithelial cell and have a cube-like shape. Each cell has a spherical nucleus in the center. Cuboidal cells are found in glands and in the lining of kidney tubules.

Cuboidal epithelia are epithelial cells having a cube-like shape; that is, their width is approximately equal to their height. They may exist in single layers (simple cuboidal epithelium) or multiple layers (stratified cuboidal epithelium) depending on their location (and thus function) in the body.
