High-speed panoramic light-sheet microscopy reveals global endodermal cell dynamics.
The size of epidermis cells, size and shape of outer cortical region, presence of sclerification in outer cortex and endodermal cell area also showed the significant diversity.
It primarily accumulates in the lateral endodermal cell walls.
The endodermal cell membranes are selectively permeable, as are all cell membranes, and act to screen ions.
The cells then were coaxed into forming either ectodermal, mesodermal, or endodermal cell types-the most basic cells of early development-or specialized brain cells.
Moreover intensive sclerification was also recorded in the endodermal cell walls.
Molecular collaborations between serpins and trefoil factor promote endodermal cell growth and gastrointestinal differentiation in budding tunicates.
The concurrent production of mucinlike substances and thyroglobulin in some tumors[11,32,33] has suggested the so-called "dual differentiation" hypothesis,[33] which assumes differentiation of a primitive endodermal cell along both an endocrine and a mucus-secreting line.
mouth and stomodaeum) might be affected by macromere ablation, but it is possible that a simple reduction of endodermal cell volume might permit the development of a complete larval gut.
The outermost symbiosome membrane, host endodermal cell membranes, and mesoglea showed dense labeling with large gold particles, indicating the presence of the G12 antigen.
The mesentoblast is formed from a single primary endodermal cell that is induced to follow a developmental program different from the other endodermal cells.
