Variety of factors can be involved in structural evolution during deformation, including crystallinity, crystalline polymorphs, meso-scale structure transformation, chain orientation, as well as distribution and concentration of tie chains in the interlamellar amorphous region [1-3].
The amorphous phase of PHB is located in the interlamellar spaces and intrafibrilar of the spherulites [66].
2005) suggested that the width and length of the interlamellar spaces plays very important role for the bitterling embryo survival.
The filament is covered by a stratified epithelium in the interlamellar region in which there are epithelial cells, melanocytes, lymphocytes, macrophages, granulocytes and eosinophils, as well as chloride cells.
No serious damage was observed in the hosts because of the identified parasites, except for the coccidian, which disrupted part of the interlamellar bridges, and the trematode sporocysts in the gonad of the razor clams, which caused almost complete castration of the gonadal tissue.
The coating layer is characterized by some pores and interlamellar micro cracks.
Huang (1975) concluded that As(V) was adsorbed on hydroxy-Al present on the external surfaces of clays, but not in the interlamellar region of vermiculite.
Other alterations such as displacement of basal interlamellar epithelium, hypertrophy of goblet and chloride cells, focal and multifocal hyperplasia of interlamellar epithelium from slight to severe resulted in partial or total fusion of the secondary lamellae (Figure 3C, D).
Rostral (ro, 61-69), lamellar (le, 90-102) and interlamellar (in, 114-127) setae setiform, barbed.
In the middle portion of the inner demibranchs of the females the interlamellar septa were distinctly thickened to provide structural support for the developing young (Jupiter and Byrne, 1997).
Pedogenesis has brought about change in the more acidic upper horizons, including a marked reduction in the expandability of the smectitic phase, possibly accounted for by the introduction of non-exchangeable hydroxy-Al into the interlamellar space or partial dissolving of smectitic phase, and a reduction in relative contents of both illite and chlorite.
Each interlamellar tube originates near the innermost concentric lamellae and grows radially toward the perimeter of the centrum.
