Likewise, AUB-induced mucus cell metaplasia was only partially abrogated in Rag[1.sup.[-/-]] mice.
We observed significant increases in the numbers of airways containing PAS-positive mucus cells in the lungs of AUB-exposed WT (Figure 2B) and [Rag1.sup.[-/-]] (Figure 2D) mice compared with their respective PBS controls (Figure 2A,C).
ABSTRACT Histologically, the epithelium of the digestive tract is pseudostratified columnar type, which is composed of 3 kinds of cells (i.e., granulated cells, nongranulated cells, and mucus cells).
Crofts (1929) described three types of cells in the hypobranchial gland of Haliotis tuberculata: mucus cells with spindle shaped secretion, mucus cells with granules, and ciliated cells.
The intestinal groove is lined by simple columnar ciliated epithelial cells, admixed with mucus cells. The abundance of cilia within the stomach and style sac is important for generating ciliary currents, which sort and direct ingesta and rotate the crystalline style.
furcodorsalis olfactory epithelium surface consists of ciliated receptor cells, ciliated non-sensory cells, microvillus cells, rod cells, supporting cells, and mucus cells. According to the classification given by Yamamoto (1982), the arrangement of olfactory organ in S.
Figure 2 shows a section of the hypobranchial gland: the basal membrane with the longitudinal muscle cells, eosinophilic and goblet mucus cells and cells with acidophilic granules.
Staining at pH 2.5, which indicates carboxylic groups, gave a strong reaction with mucus cells at the base of the PG, a weaker reaction in the middle of the belt, and was seen as a thin apical layer at the cells of the OME.
asinina has 3 types of cells: sensory ceils, supporting cells; which are the majority of cell type, and mucus cells. This is in agreement with the study by Croft (1929) who reported similar finding in the cephalic tentacle of H.
