Structurally, the mucosa has four adaptations that increase the absorptive surface area: n n n n Plicae circulares (circular folds, or valves of Kerckring) Intestinal villi Intestinal glands Microvilli on the apical epithelium A plicae circularis is a permanent folding of the mucosa and submucosa into the lumen of the intestine.
