An increase in cell length was observed in the epimastigote form, followed by a decrease in cell body width.
The myonemal fibers transverse the cell body and as they approach the posterior end (scopular region) of the cell body, they bundle together to form one massive spasmoneme that traverses through the length of the stalk.
In the present study with no phylogenetic purposes and to facilitate the comparisons, the groups of species of Histioneis were mainly delimited by 1) the shape of the cell body (rotund, reniform, etc) and 2) the orientation and shape of the left sulcal list.
They consist of an oval shaped outer cell body, a circular, outlined nucleus with homogenous, lightly stained interior, and an innermost nucleolus, which appears as a spot.
GFP was expressed in the cell body and also extensively in neuronal processes extending laterally away from the ventricular wall (represented by the border between Figure 2B,C).
The regenerated egg from nuclear transfer has been cleared of its female component to make way to become the housing for a cell body: a living object without female components, without male impregnation, without the condition for receiving a human soul.
In our nervous system, each neuron (nerve cell) consists of three parts: a main structure called the cell body; a number of short, branchlike fibers called dendrites; and a long, cablelike protrusion called an axon, which splits near its tip into many terminals.
Integrated into this tissue are bipolar olfactory neurons, which, starting at the tissue's surface, consist of (1) dendrites, hair-like projections that receive informational molecules; (2) the olfactory knob from which the dendrites are attached; (3) the cell body, containing the neuron's nucleus and metabolic center; and (4) the signal-conducting axon.
