Epithelial cell proliferation and apoptosis during morphogenesis of the murine palatal rugae (PR) were examined histochemically by using anti-bromodeoxyuridine (BrdU) and the terminal deoxynucleotidyl transferase-mediated UTP nick-end-labelling (TUNEL) technique. Formation of the PR rudiment was observed as an epithelial placode in fetuses at 12.5 days(More)
Immunohistochemical localisation of the carbonic anhydrase III isozyme in rat parotid glands was studied. In parotid glands, CA-III was found to be present in the striated and excretory duct cells with heterogenous staining. No significant activity could be found in other regions of the glands. Ultrastructurally, the reaction of anti-CA-III isozyme was(More)
Twelve cases of ovarian clear cell carcinoma were studied histologically. Four cases were examined electron microscopically and compared with other conditions. Five tumors were directly connected with ovarian endometriosis. They were histologically classified into a tubular type with hobnail cells and a solid type without tubular pattern or hobnail cells.(More)
The present study examined the possibility for regeneration of pancreatic endocrine cells from centroacinar (CA) and intercalated duct (ICD) cells in rat pancreas after 5 days of continuous streptozotocin (STZ) administration. Nine rats were divided into 3 experimental groups: 1) Control group, 2) Short term recovery group; three days after STZ(More)
The present study describes histological alterations and immunohistochemical distributions of extracellular matrices (ECMs) and the carbonic anhydrase isozyme-III (CA-III) during the period of bovine palatine ridge formation. Morphogenesis of bovine palatine ridges was preceded by epidermal placodes and the mesenchymal condensation (MC). During the early(More)
Immunolocalization of the secretory form of carbonic anhydrase isoenzyme, CA-VI were studied using a specific canine CA-VI antiserum, and CA-VI mRNA signals were also investigated using the reverse-transcriptase polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) in canine nasal mucosal epithelia and glands. Immunoreactivity to CA-VI was positive throughout the mucosal(More)
The distribution of bovine carbonic anhydrase isozyme VI (CA-VI), purified from bovine saliva, was studied immunohistochemically using antiserum against bovine CA-VI in bovine parotid glands during fetal and postnatal development. A weak expression of CA-VI in undifferentiated epithelial cells and ductal cells was observed in a 4- to 5-month-old fetus with(More)
The development and degradation of temporary tooth buds and the development of rudiment of baleen plate were observed by gross-anatomical and histological examinations in twenty-four fetuses of the southern minke whale, Balaenoptera acutorostrata. The primary patterns of development of tooth buds were similar to those of deciduous tooth buds in the(More)
In this study we aimed to elucidate the physiological role of gammadelta intraepithelial lymphocytes (IEL) in the mouse intestine. For this purpose, we used T-cell receptor (TCR) Vgamma4/Vdelta5 transgenic mice (KN 6 Tg: BALB/c background, H-2d), and compared the immunological and physiological characteristics of the intestinal tracts of KN 6 Tg and(More)
The distribution of cells incorporating bromodeoxyuridine (BrdU) and the expression of molecules involved in the control of cell proliferation (proliferating cell nuclear antigen [PCNA], a cellular factor in F9 teratocarcinoma cells that recognizes an adenovirus E1A inducible promoter 1 [E2F1] and proliferation-related acidic nuclear protein 31 [PAL31])(More)
