Ber-EP4 is a useful marker for follicular germinative cell differentiation of cutaneous epithelial neoplasms.
Although injecting a scolicidal solution is a widely-used practice during surgical or radiological intervention for the treatment of hydatid cyst, the objective evidence regarding the effect of this is controversial as there are studies confirming viable protoscoleces after proper usage of the most effective scolicidal agents, especially in the germinative membrane imprints (6).
The authors observed ~90% of the germination for this species when the catalase and peroxidase activity doubled, helping in the protection against the formation of ROS and promoting the germinative process.
During the ultrasonographic examination, a decrease in the cyst diameter, detachment of the germinative membrane for Gharbi type 1 and 2 hydatid cysts, development of pseudosolid pattern, disappearance of daughter cysts in Gharbi type III, disappearance of the whole cystic lesion, and calcification of the cyst wall were accepted as effective treatment.
They also observed that according to the number of times the seed passages through the flame the result is differentiated, obtaining a germinative percentage of 79% when the seeds were submitted twice and 30% when they were submitted three times to the flame.
Heat can directly control pathogens by protein denaturation, lipid release, destruction of hormones, reduction of metabolic reserves or injuries, inhibition or retardation of germinative tube elongation, or inactivation of spores.
It is germinative in nature, alchemises intent and effort to achieve results that dispel despair to make way for optimism and opportunity.
Pathological examination of the excised material revealed intense calcification over lamellar hyalinized cystic structures and although no daughter vesicles or germinative membrane were reported, the case was diagnosed as hydatid cyst.
Sporocysts containing inside germinative balls (masses) and cercariae in various development stages (some with a ventral oral sucker and a bifurcate tail) were observed in mantle, gills, digestive gland, and gonads (Figure 2).
In fact, soil acidity associated with exchangeable soil Al ([Al.sup.+]) may affect spore germination, growth of germinative tube, hyphae, and root [26].
Previous studies have hypothesized that BCCs arise from follicular germ cells such as the primary epithelial hair germ cell, follicular germinative cells, ORS of hair follicle, ORS of vellus hair follicles, hair matrix and primordial dermal adnexa, ORS of hair follicle of embryonic hair germ, embryonic primary epithelial germ cell, and pluripotent stem cell [9, 14, 16].
