Different researchers have carried out different methods to assess the grading of the different types of ameloblastomas of which one of the methods which assess the proliferative activity of ameloblastoma are argyrophilic nucleolar organizer regin (AgNOR) which stains the proteins with silver stain which is associated with active nucleolar organizer regions (NOR|), these are DNA loops that transcribe to ribosomal RNA directs protein synthesis and ribosomal formation.
The objectives of this study were to compare the argyrophilic nucleolar organizer region (AgNOR) parameters and estrogen receptor status with grades of invasive ductal carcinoma of breast.
2016), an integrated physical map of constitutive heterochromatic regions (Het), ribosomal loci (rDNA) and nucleolar organizer regions (NORs) in a single accession of this variety is unavailable, that could help to correlate chromosomes with genetic linkage maps and the future whole-genome sequence of the species.

Mesquita RA found higher numbers of Argyrophilic Nucleolar Organizer Regions (AgNORs) and proliferating cell nuclear antigen (PCNA)-positive cells in ossifying fibroma than in peripheral ossifying fibroma indicating higher proliferative activity in ossifying fibroma, X-ray diffraction analysis indicated that the mineral phase of both central and peripheral tissues consists of apatite crystals and that the crystallinity of these apatites is lower than that of bone apatite.
