Gamete carrying ducts of reproductive system are lined by ciliated cells : in females it is the oviduct, in males it is the spermiducal canal.


In human, oviduct is represented by fallopian tube: a scanning electron micrograph image of its lining shows presence of ciliated cells and secretory cells.

Spermiducal canal in man is called vas deferens: lining of the duct is made up of pseudostratified epithelial cells with cilia.

Gametes are released in ciliated ducts from gonads. Cilia help in transportation of gametes along the reproductive tract.
