do humans also contains microvilli???

Thousands of microvilli form a structure called thebrush borderthat is found on theapical surfaceof someepithelial cells, such as thesmall intestinal. (Microvilli should not be confused withintestinal villi, which are made of many cells. Each of these cells has many microvilli.) Microvilli are observed on the plasma surface of eggs, aiding in the anchoring of sperm cells that have penetrated the extracellular coat of egg cells. Clustering of elongated microtubules around a sperm allows for it to be drawn closer and held firmly so fusion can occur.

Microvilli are also of importance on the cell surface ofwhite blood cells, as they aid in the migration of white blood cells.
