Such additive mixtures define sampling densities that are known to be optimal for multivariate discrete least-squares polynomial approximation algorithms, and allow us to provide supporting empirical evidence for an asymptotic conjecture involving weighted pluripotential equilibrium measures.

There are several theories regarding the histogenesis of extragonadal yolk sac tumor, including (1) arrested migration of or misplaced germ cells during embryogenesis, (2) reverse migration of germ cells, (3) abnormal differentiation of somatic cells, (4) derivation from pluripotential stem cells within a somatic tumor, (5) origination from residual fetal tissue following incomplete abortion (for primary endometrial yolk sac tumor), and (6) metastasis from an occult gonadal primary.
gingivalis LPS, raises the possibility that even under an inflammatory condition, periodontal ligament MSCs are capable of maintaining their pluripotential and undifferentiated state.
Luminal PAS are thought to derive from pluripotential mesenchymal cells of the intima, while mural sarcomas, less frequent than luminal sarcomas, can be difficult to distinguish from sarcomas of the lung parenchyma due to their growing; they are more likely to appear as mass-like lesions [4].
Another hypothesis is that AC derived from pluripotential indifferent cells of either the squamous epithelium or the minor salivary gland [10].

(1) Although it represents the most common testicular sex cord-stromal tumor in infancy, a literature search reveals less than 100 reported cases.1 It has been postulated that JGCT originates from primitive, pluripotential gonadal stromal cells or immature Sertoli and peritubular myoid cells.
Due to their pluripotential immunomodulatory properties (e.g., activation of B lymphocytes, macrophages and other immunocompetent host cells), these biomolecules are of huge interest in medicine [2-4].
