The microvilli are marked with arrows; green arrow: double microvilli (see the text); red arrow: a radially cut microvillus
, with axial symmetry.
Note the ciliated non-sensory cells (CN), microvillus
(MV), and supporting cells (S) and rod cells (RD).
Loss-of-function of MYO5B is the main cause of microvillus
inclusion disease: 15 novel mutations and a CaCo-2 RNAi cell model.
The relationship is very strong, but the volume fraction occupied by rhabdomeres in the rhabdomeric layer, the numerical density of the microvilli in the rhabdomere, and the diameter of each microvillus
show an inconspicuous growth.
"Sameerah was suffering from microvillus
inclusion disease and was very seriously ill," he said.
Hospital consultant Dr Gale Pearson said Sameerah had been born with microvillus
inclusion disease, which affects one in 10,000, adding: "It can be life threatening."
The enterocele cells with microvillus
and glycoprotein coating are involved in absorbing oral insulin, digesting food with sugar, liquids, secretions, etc.
A small pore is created in the vitelline layer, through which the sperm nuclear filament is extended to meet and fuse with an egg microvillus
. Penetration of the egg by one sperm induces the cortical granule reaction, and a fertilization membrane is raised after a few minutes.

Increases in intracellular calcium levels can result in the depolymerization of actin by villin (a calcium-dependent microvillus
protein) and a breakdown of the host cytoskeleton not unlike that seen in EPEC-infected cells (24).
Indications for the use of HPN in children are short bowel syndrome (SBS), chronic intestinal pseudo-obstruction (CIP), intractable diarrhea, congenital microvillus
atrophy, and Crohn's disease (Dahlstrom, Strandvik, Kopple, & Ament, 1985; Ricour, 1989).
contains 20 structures called microfilaments, which function much like the poles supporting a tent.
