A comparative light microscopic and scanning electron microscopic study of the morphogenesis of peritoneal metastasis in 34 human gastric cancers was performed. Prior to adhesion of gastric cancer cells to the peritoneum, the mesothelial cells became hemispherical and exfoliated from the peritoneum, and gastric cancer cells adhered to the naked areas of the(More)
Light elements must be present in the nearly pure iron core of the Earth to match the remotely observed properties of the outer and inner cores. Crystallization of the inner core excludes light elements from the solid, concentrating them in liquid near the inner-core boundary that potentially rises and collects at the top of the core, and this may have a(More)
Earth's core is composed primarily of iron (Fe) with about 10% by weight of lighter elements. The lighter elements are progressively enriched in the liquid outer core as the core cools and the inner core crystallizes. Thermodynamic modeling of Fe-O-S liquids shows that immiscible liquids can exist at outer-core pressures (136 to 330 gigapascals) at(More)
