What are ciliated cells and what are their purpouse?

Question asked by: knowitall

Cilia are tiny little hairs, hence ciliated cells are those with hairs on.

These can beat in co-ordination, and are therefore excellent for helping the transfer and movement of material across the surface of the cell.

Therefore wherever this is useful and advantageous for an organism, these tiny hairlike structures are likely to occur.
