Adding to the confusion is that the tumor acini
often have unusual atrophic cytoplasm; careful attention to the infiltrative architecture and nuclear atypia is crucial to arriving at the correct diagnosis.
Over time, the compressed malignant cells grew into more organized, healthy-looking acini
that resembled normal structures, compared with malignant cells that were not compressed.
NO can be regarded as a potential cause for decreased salivary gland function in RA patients, that leads to apoptosis of gland acini
, and to the decreased production of saliva.
28] In normal prostatic acini
, PSA is processed by enzymatic nicking of a 7 kD segment, followed by back diffusion into the serum.
The adenoma was characterized by the presence of numerous acini
with stromal elements and nucleus of benign type.
G12D] (Oncogenes) lost their acini
polarities (a feature of abnormally dividing cells at metaphase stage) and had increased cell proliferation rate; it was demonstrated that the cells filled up the lumen of the glands; suggesting loss of cell cycle control and increased cell proliferation.
Salivary glands are composed of specialized epithelial cells, and the basic secretory units of salivary glands are clusters of cells called acini
AQP-5 appeared mainly at the apical membrane of mucous glands, basolateral membrane and basal membrane of serous acini
The mammary gland contained numerous small acini
with small amounts of milk in the acini
Ultrasonogram of the right and left parotid gland revealed multiple hypoechoic areas and heterogeneous distribution of internal echoes suggestive of inflammatory changes and dilation of acini
in both glands (Fig.
Neutrophilic infiltration and cellular debris accumulation in acini
Wiegand finished 25-6 with a +1728 spread in a final match that featured words such as ACINI
(a small saclike division of a gland), NIDATION (implanted in the uterus) and WAWL (to cry like a cat).
