basoplasm

A near-extinct nonspecific term for cytoplasm with a high affinity for basic dye(s); basophilic cytoplasm. Virtually no structure or finding described by pre-20th-century microscopists has survived modern investigation, given that the stains were nonspecific, the understanding of cell biology was primitive or incorrect and molecular analysis impossible.
