Several coronary arteries within the interventricular septum were partially (80%) to fully occluded secondary to marked thickening of the intimal and median tunics by acellular fibrillar to foamy eosinophilic to amphophilic material (Fig 3C).
In some areas, however, the cells had an appearance more suggestive of pancreatic acinar differentiation with vaguely granular, amphophilic cytoplasm; central nuclei; and prominent nucleoli.
Ductal features were defined as: (1) high-grade nuclei; (2) abundant and typically amphophilic cytoplasm; and (3) tall/pseudostratified cells arranged in papillary projections, discreet glands, or cribriform structures with intervening slit like lumen.
The cytologic features observed in both cases parallel those reported in mammalian seminomas: large, polyhedral cells with sharp borders, vesicular nuclei, prominent nucleoli, and scant basophilic or amphophilic cytoplasm.
Large cells with vesicular nuclei, prominent nucleoli, and amphophilic cytoplasm (plasmablasts) were present in the mantle layer and interfollicular areas.
The tumor cells contained moderate amounts of amphophilic cytoplasm with moderately sized vesicular nuclei that had irregular contours and distinct nucleoli (Figure 1, B).
ADV inclusions were defined by a homogeneous, amphophilic, or basophilic mass that almost completely filled the nucleus.
The mononuclear cells of chondroblastoma have a moderate amount of amphophilic cytoplasm and grooved, indented nuclei, with pericellular calcifications in a so-called chicken-wire pattern.

In this study the microwave-assisted transesterification between CMC and the triacyl glycerides of rapeseed oil was investigated and the chemical, surface-active and associative properties of the obtained water-soluble amphophilic CMC derivatives were characterized.
The resultant coatings are coded M for hydrophilic series, P for hydrophobic series, A for amphophilic series.
