Apparently, Tebbs did not take into consideration the protologue of Artanthe sancta, and its new combination of Piper sanctum, which clearly indicate that the leaves are membranaceous, punctate pellucid, puberulent along the veins and margin, and with five secondary nerves all originating along the middle part of the leaf (pinnatinerved):
2) or two (pGag and pRev) helper plasmids allowing expression of all structural proteins, reverse transcriptase, and protease; membranaceous vesicular stomatitis virus protein (pVSV-G) pseudotyping virions, which does not require cell receptor to initiate membrane fusion, thus ensuring a high transduction efficiency and a wide range of susceptible cells.
Each fruit has up to two seeds with a seed coat (testa) varying from membranaceous to cartaceous.
This genus is characterized by superficial ascomata usually covered with hairs or setae (6); membranaceous peridium, consisting of several pseudoparenchymatous layers; asci that are clavate or fusiform (with biseriately arranged ascospores) or sometimes cylindrical (with uniseriately arranged ascospores), thin-walled, evanescent and without apical structures; scarce paraphyses that disappear before ascocarps mature (7); ascospores that are brown or gray-brown (never opaque or black), one celled, with one or sometimes two germ pores, and exuding as a dark, black, sticky mass (8).
The corolla is membranaceous with basally fused and apically free petals, rotate, between 7.
Algumas especies de bambu, como os Phyllostachys edulis e o Phyllostachys pubescens tem fibras curtas com 1,3-1,5 mm de comprimento, enquanto outras, como o Dendrocalamus giganteus, Dendrocalamus membranaceous apresentam fibras com 3,2 e 4,3 mm de comprimento (GROSSER e LIESE, 1971, 1974; LIESE, 1998; WEN e CHOU, 1985).
The morphology of the first eophyll did not differ among the study species, showing ovate-shape membranaceous leaves with convex apex, margin entire, rounded base, acrodrome leaf venation base and three main veins (Fig.

However there are many herbs of equal value that if prescribed appropriately may add to the effectiveness of prescriptions, such as Andrographis paniculata, Astragalus membranaceous (for chronic conditions), Al lium sativum etc.
