In addition, ventral islands located near the endostyle have been identified as sites of phagocyte turnover (Lauzon et al.
Observations obtained via video endoscopy demonstrate that particles are captured on the frontal surface of the gill filaments and incorporated rapidly into fine strings of mucus that are likely produced by the endostyle and, to a lesser extent, the frontal-surface mucocytes of the gill (see Orton (1914) and Beninger et al.
KCIO4 inhibits thyroidal activity in the larval lamprey endostyle in vitro.
The right side musculature is formed by both longitudinal and transverse fibers, the longitudinal wider and running toward both the endostyle and the posterior region, the transverse forming a dense mat underneath the longitudinal fibers.
The niches where the progenitor cells reside and proliferate have been hypothesized to be located in the anterior part of the endostyle (Voskoboynik et al.

Here we test the hypothesis that age of a specific developmental stage in the urochordate appendicularian Oikopleura dioica Fol, 1872, can be predicted from the number of endostyle cells and temperature, thus serving as such a reference system.
In addition, lysosomal activity was inferred to be an important component in cell death in some instances, as autophagosomes were frequently observed within cells of the endostyle near the ventral sinus, independently of the necrotic changes described above (Fig.
