The microvasculature of human spleens is still incompletely understood. Two enigmatic types of red pulp microvessels, penicillar arterioles and sheathed capillaries, have already been described in the nineteenth century without gaining much attention afterwards. We performed a detailed analysis of sheathed capillaries to clarify the cellular composition of(More)
A technique for embedding human undecalcified tooth specimens in Technovit® 9100 was developed, which permits immunohistological evaluation of pulp tissue in serial ground sections. Human molars were divided into 14-18 sections of about 23 µm thickness. Immunohistological double staining for S-100 and CD34 revealed unique associations of myelinated nerve(More)
A portable ultrahigh-vacuum system optimized for in situ variable-temperature X-ray scattering and spectroscopy experiments at synchrotron radiation beamlines was constructed and brought into operation at the synchrotron radiation facility ANKA of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, Germany. Here the main features of the new instrument are described and(More)
At least three phenotypically and morphologically distinguishable types of branched stromal cells are revealed in the human splenic white pulp by subtractive immunohistological double-staining. CD271 is expressed in fibroblastic reticulum cells of T-cell zones and in follicular dendritic cells of follicles. In addition, there is a third CD2711- and CD271+/)(More)
Comprehensive studies of lattice dynamics in the ferromagnetic semiconductor EuO have been performed by a combination of inelastic x-ray scattering, nuclear inelastic scattering, and ab initio calculations. A remarkably large broadening of the transverse acoustic phonons was discovered at temperatures above and below the Curie temperature T_{C}=69  K. This(More)
On Salmonella typhimurium variatio copenhagen (STMVC) strains, isolated from pigeons with acute Salmonellosis, two types of fimbriae can be identified, depending on different growth conditions. In addition to the common 7 nm fimbriae we were able to demonstrate in the electron microscope, thin, curled fimbriae 3 nm in diameter which are characterized by a(More)
The arrangement of microvessels in human bone marrow is so far unknown. We combined monoclonal antibodies against CD34 and against CD141 to visualise all microvessel endothelia in 21 serial sections of about 1 cm2 size derived from a human iliac crest. The specimen was not decalcified and embedded in Technovit® 9100. In different regions of interest, the(More)
We report a systematic lattice dynamics study of EuSi_{2} films and nanoislands by in situ nuclear inelastic scattering on ^{151}Eu and ab initio theory. The Eu-partial phonon density of states of the nanoislands exhibits anomalous excess of phonon states at low and high energies, not present in the bulk and at the EuSi_{2}(001) surface. We demonstrate that(More)
