Cells differing widely in tissue distribution, immunophenotype and ultrastructure have been described as myofibroblasts. The definition of the myofibroblast was analysed as applied to normal tissues, with original observations on Wharton's jelly stromal cells as an example. Stromal cells in Wharton's jelly were studied by conventional histology… CONTINUE READING
