The endothelium which is a type of epithelium is made up of endothelial (specialized epithelial) cells which line the blood vessels. Ordinary epithelium is made up of epithelial cells that are one of the four types of cells from which animal tissues are constructed (epithelial, nervous, muscle and connective).
