The researchers showed that the resulting Club-iPL cells could give rise to Club cells and other respiratory tract cells such as mucus-secreting goblet cells and ciliated epithelial cells that produce the CFTR protein, which is mutated in patients with cystic fibrosis.
Histopathological examination results showed a polypoid lesion that was covered with ciliated pseudostratified respiratory epithelium and that comprised many glandular spaces with ducts of various sizes, which were embedded in a fibrous stroma.
The presence of ciliated cells in these glands is an important clue that the proliferation is benign, and the lower-power appearance may also be a hint in that the clusters of glands will have intervening scar or lung tissue around them.
The epithelium is ciliated, pseudostratified, columnar (respiratory epithelium) and stratified squamous elsewhere.
Prelabral setae ciliated; proximal row of labral setae sparsely ciliated, setae on medial and distal rows smooth; distal margin of labrum smooth.
Ciliated cyst of probable mullerian origin arising in the posterior mediastinum.
1 mm; leaflets 5-15 pairs, papyraceous, pilose, 4-23 x 2-65 mm, oblong-elliptic, ovate and suborbicular, venation brochidodromous, nervures 6-9 pairs, apex emarginated and mucronate, base oblique, margin plane, ciliated.
It is true that it is difficult for microscopists who are not familiar with the technique to become skilled at differentiating between multiflagellated protozoa and bronchial ciliated cells.
Transplanting regionally specific lung tissue (proximal or distal) from mice and humans generates TELu with typical location-specific tissue markers such as particular alveolar or air sac cells in the distal TELu or tracheal epithelial cells organized with cartilage and ciliated appendages for proximal lung.
This protection system is made up of cells called ciliated cells.
This protection system is comprised of cells called ciliated cells.
