Testosterone metabolism in primary culture of human prostate epithelial cells
EM examination revealed abundant mature and immature poxvirus particles in the cytoplasm of epithelial cells
(Figure 2C, D).
Providing a base for these epithelial cells
is the stroma, a tissue that includes cells called fibroblasts.
Serial sectioning of thyroid follicles showed thyroid hyperplasia with increased follicular epithelial cell
height and reduced colloid in all groups of fish that had been exposed to perchlorate for 28 days, compared with control fish.
These black pigment deposits remain in epithelial cells
for long periods of time.
Furthermore, transport of pIgA containing immune complexes across epithelial cells
expressing the pIgR is another defense mechanism of the mucosal immune system against pathogen entry (25).
The researchers worked with normal human epithelial cells
gathered from surgical samples from skin, cervix, esophagus and throat.
Further study is warranted to investigate the signal transduction pathway responsible for ufCB-induced VEGF gene expression in epithelial cells
Expression of RANTES (regulated upon activation, normal T-cell expressed and secreted, CCL-5), which is chemotactic to T cells, is increased in rotavirus-infected epithelial cells
pyogenes (DSM 2071) as test organism, and HEp-2 cells and buccal epithelial cells
(BEC) as substrata.
The team identified a deficiency in the production of interferon-B (a chemical messenger) which triggers a 'suicide' response, called apoptosis, in the infected epithelial cells
To investigate cellular tropism of influenza viruses, the authors employed cultures of differentiated human airway epithelial cells
which closely mimic airway epithelium in vivo.
