[210] Pois, quando definem barbarismo e solecismo, afirmam que: 'barbarismo e o desvio (paraptosis) do uso comum em uma palavra apenas'; e 'solecismo e o desvio do uso, e da coerencia, em toda a construcao (suntaksis).' [211] Contra isso, podemos logo dizer: mas se o barbarismo ocorre em uma palavra apenas e o solecismo na combinacao (suntaksis) das palavras, e, como ficou demonstrado acima, nao existe nem palavra sozinha, tampouco a combinacao delas, barbarismo e solecismo nao sao nada.

A new type programmed cell death, paraptosis has been recently identified.
OPA may be effective against glioblastoma because it induces paraptosis, which is a form of programmed cell death that is morphologically and biochemically distinct from apoptosis [132].
We found besides apoptosis that [sup.125]I seed radiation killed colorectal cancer cell via inducing paraptosis. Paraptosis induced by several natural products such as coelomocyte extracts, honokiol, gamma-Tocotrienol, curcumin, and berberine in anticancer treatment receives more and more attention in recent years [9-13].
However, the mechanisms underlying paraptosis have not yet been fully understood.
Honokiol induces paraptosis and apoptosis and exhibits schedule-dependent synergy in combination with imatinib in human leukemia cells.
Paraptosis is characterized by progressive swelling of mitochondria, endoplasmic reticulum (ER) and cytoplasmatic vacuolation.
19, 2000 PROCEEDINGS OF THE NATIONAL ACADEMY OF SCIENCES, Sperandio, Bredesen, and their colleagues declared this a novel kind of cell suicide, dubbing it paraptosis.
Bredesen notes, however, that these molds and yeasts do follow a process that structurally resembles paraptosis.
reported that OP-A caused marked changes in the organization of the actin cytoskeleton and induced paraptosis through the disruption of internal potassium ion homeostasis in glioblastoma cells [73].
* Paraptosis. A process similar to apoptosis (programmed cell death), curcumin initiates paraptosis only in breast cancer cells, resulting in their rapid destruction.
