This present study contributes to a better comprehension about the diversity of ciliated
protists in limnic ecosystems in Brazil and emphasizes the importance of development of new and efficient growth methods for in vitro culture of these microorganisms aiming future biotechnological end environmental monitoring studies.
The esophageal mucosa is arranged into longitudinal folds and is composed of simple columnar ciliated
epithelial cells interspersed with mucus cells, especially at the tips of the folds (Fig.
Differential diagnosis from ciliated
bronchial epithelial cells was done with key morphological features such as ovoid shape of the cell, tuft of numerous and irregular flagella originated from a round basis, granular cytoplasm and absence of terminal bar.
On February 22, 2006, numerous orthonectid ciliated
larvae were found in a closed tube containing X.
In general, the presence of cilia indicates a benign process; however, rare malignant tumors with ciliated
cells have been reported in some organs including the endometrium, oropharynx, and lungs.
Moderation of ruminal fermentation by ciliated
Protozoa in cattle fed a high-grain diet.
The presence of mucous cells and ciliated
cells in epithelial lining of odontogenic cysts is a metaplastic change, in which squamous epithelial cells are replaced by mucous cells.
cyst of probable mullerian origin arising in the posterior mediastinum.
epithelial cells are not the only cells to express bitter taste receptors in the airway.
(a) Low-power view of the subcutaneous cystic lesion (50x magnification) and (b) high-power view of the cyst wall, containing ectopic ciliated
respiratory epithelium (arrow), smooth muscle (star), and small mucous glands (triangle) (200x magnification).
Bronchogenic cysts can be ciliated
and may stain positive cytokeratin (CK7) positive but rarely stain PAX8, WT-1, and ER positive .
Interestingly, in hypothalamus many of the leptin responsive neurons are ciliated
and BBS proteins are crucial for cilia function .
