Secretory spaces in species of the clade Dipterygeae (Leguminosae, Papilionoideae)
(Soc Botanica Brasil, 2017-07-01)
Dipteryx, Pterodon and Taralea are legume genera known for secreting oils, produced in secretory canals and cavities, with medicinal properties. We analyzed the distribution, morphology and histochemistry of these glands ...
Secretory Profile of Metapleural Gland Cells of the Leaf-Cutting Ant Acromyrmex coronatus (Formicidae: Attini)
Ants present a pair of metapleural glands located at the posterolateral end of the thorax. Because of its importance in the social organization of ants, the present study was aimed at describing the morphophysiology of ...
Electron Microscopic Evaluation of the Secretory Mechanisms of Renin from Juxtaglomerular Cells
(Sociedad Chilena de Anatomía, 2010)
ULTRASTRUCTURAL SIMILARITY BETWEEN BAT AND HUMAN MAST-CELL SECRETORY GRANULES
Mast cells in the tongue of the bat (Artibeus lituratus) show a well-developed Golgi area and abundant mitochondria in the granule-free perinuclear cytoplasm. Rough endoplasmic reticulum profiles, free ribosomes, mitochondria, ...
Morphological aspects of Culex quinquefasciatus salivary glands
The salivary glands of Culex quinquefasciatus female mosquitoes are paired organs composed of two lateral lobes with proximal and distal secretory portions, and a medial lobe. All portions comprise a simple epithelium that ...
Resin secretory canals in Protium heptaphyllum (Aubl.) Marchand. (Burseraceae): a tridimensional branched and anastomosed system
Protium heptaphyllum is a Burseraceae species known by the production of aromatic resin with medicinal, economic, and ecological values. Information on the development, architecture, and lifetime of the secretory system ...
Ovariectomy increases the phenotypic plasticity of the female prostate epithelium in the Mongolian gerbil (Meriones unguiculatus)
The female prostate is a reproductive gland that typically presents a morphology similar to that of the male gland and is highly developed in female Mongolian gerbils. Two main cell populations compose the epithelium gland: ...
Developmental and structural features of secretory canals in root and shoot wood of Copaifera langsdorffii Desf. (Leguminosae-Caesalpinioideae)
Copaifera langsdorffii Desf., popularly known as copaiba, is an oleoresin-producing tree has been over-exploited in Brazil by the pharmaceutical, cosmetic and varnish industries. Despite the long history of the use of this ...
Heterogeneity in composition of mouse uterine natural killer cell granules
(Federation Amer Soc Exp BiolBethesdaEUA, 2012)
Anatomical studies of the secretory structures: glandular trichomes and ducts, in Grindelia pulchella Dunal (Astereae, Asteraceae)
(Elsevier Gmbh, 2011-04)
The ultrastructure of the glandular trichomes and secretory ducts of Grindelia pulchella was studied. Plastids, mitochondria and endoplasmic reticulum are involved in the secretory process of both, trichomes and ducts. A ...
