intercellular coupling
regions of special and high ionic permeability at points of junction between closely apposed cells. These regions offer lower resistance to the passage of electric current and large molecules. This phenomenon is most apparent in the skin.
epidermal intercellular edema
intercellular infection of ducks
a disease principally of Muscovy ducks caused by an unidentified bacteria and accompanied by hyperemia and edema of the lungs.
intercellular substance
extracellular material occurring in large amounts in connective tissue; includes the intercellular matrix composed of fibrous and amorphous (glycosaminoglycans, proteoglycans) components.
