3D and 4D): The acini
of uniform size are completely filled by mature oocytes with a relatively homogenous size, and a visible nucleus occupies the lumen.
Morphologically, the acini
in these p63-positive carcinomas frequently appear atrophic, with a high nuclear-cytoplasmic ratio and a basaloid appearance (Figure 1, E).
Changes in nerve terminals and acini
of the lacrimal gland and changes in secretion induced by autonomic denervation.
Not only do cancer cells continue to grow irregularly when they shouldn't, recent studies have shown that they do not rotate coherently when forming acini
In both Ariopelta species, the ovotestis consists of tightly packed acini
of which the basal parts are often divided into a few short lobes.
The Heinrich classification system is frequently used to classify heterotopic pancreas: type 1 (containing acini
, islets and ducts), type 2 (acini
and ducts, no islets) and type 3 (ducts alone) (9).
It is thought that pancreatic acini
in infants with CF are capable of producing trypsinogen, but ductules are blocked, preventing trypsinogen from reaching the small intestine to be converted to trypsin, hence leading to 'spillage' into the circulation.
Recent studies show hypofunction of salivary glands in patients with pSS, but higher concentrations of nitrite and iNOS in the salivary gland acini
in these patients (20).
According to the pathology report, the specimens consisted of fibromuscular tissue containing hyperplastic prostate acini
and solid accumulations of malignant cells of various sizes.
Prostate-specific antigen is a glycoprotein produced primarily by the prostate epithelial cells that line the ducts and acini
of the prostate.
In previous studies, Furuta and collaborators have shown that conditioned-medium, taken from normal mammary epithelial cells while in the process of forming acini
in a 3D lamin-rich extracellular matrix culture, can revert the malignant phenotype of breast cancer cells so that they behave as if they were normal breast cells.
The neoplastic acini
of adenoid hepatocellular carcinomas may contain proteinaceous material, while cholangiocarcinomas are more likely to have PAS positive mucin within neoplastic acini
