Embryological origin of interstitial cells
c-Kit is a type III transmembrane tyrosine kinase receptor that has been implicated in the development and maintenance of red blood cells, mast cells, melanocytes, germ cells, and interstitial cells
Spontaneous electrical and Ca2+ signals in typical and atypical smooth muscle cells and interstitial cell
of Cajal-like cells of mouse renal pelvis.
Alterations of neurokinin receptors and interstitial cells
of Cajal during and after jejunal inflammation induced by Nippostrongylus brasiliensis in the rat.
Severe idiopathic gastroparesis due to neuronal and interstitial cells
of Cajal degeneration: pathological findings and management.
In summary, this study demonstrated that (1) Fgfr1 and Fgfr2 in mouse testes were present in germ, Sertoli and interstitial cells
throughout entire postnatal development; (2) male germ cell-selective individual ablation of Fgfr1 or Fgfr2 did not affect mouse reproductive capability and suggested possible presence of redundant FGF/FGFR signal pathways in adult male germ cells.
1) We previously described a benign stromal tumor of the gallbladder with a phenotype of interstitial cells
The influence of oxalate on renal epithelial and interstitial cells
These cells, known as interstitial cells
of Cajal, are part of the autonomic nervous system, which regulates body processes such as food digestion.
Reduction in the number of interstitial cells
could be a reason for this significant decrease in testosterone concentration.
During several weeks after the onset of obstruction, the pressure in the urinary tract was highly elevated and this pressure increase may have mechanically stimulated interstitial cells
and induced an increase in COX-2 expression.
Six patients had anomalies in the number or the size of the interstitial cells
