The histological profile revealed degenerative changes in testes of treated pigeons with elongated and irregular diameter of seminiferous tubules, degenerative of Sertoli cells, severe atrophy of Leydig cells and pronounced decrease in the interstitial space. The intact stages of spermatogenesis indicates that the thiram-exposed pigeons were not in the refractoriness period.
Additional analysis is presented to demonstrate the effective UVC penetration of the coil's interstitial spaces and theoretical microbial reduction on coil surfaces.
Seminiferous tubules of the testis of high altitude rats (postnatal day 7) showing detached Basal lamina (DBL), spermatogonia resting on basal lamina and primary spermatocytes with pyknotic nuclei (PN) and interstititial endocrine cells (Leydig cell) (L) in the interstitial space. Wide interstitial spaces are observed (H&E, X1000).
Since collagen types I, III, and IV are components of ECM, we performed two different collagen staining methods, MT and SR staining, to assess collagen deposition in the interstitial space (Klahr and Morrissey 2002).
The interstitial space included the "eye in the sky" security walkway, offices and mechanical rooms with HVAC systems that served the casino level.
No welding is done until the end assembly for the entry tunnel to the interstitial space.
Weaving loom loops and pushpins, which simulate semi-permeable membranes, make borders among the extracellular space/vascular space, intracellular space, and interstitial spaces. Each colored pebble represents components of the cellular and vascular space, such as water, blood, albumin, sodium, glucose, and potassium (see Figure 2).
Then the liquefied fat moves from inside the cell through a temporary pore formed in the cell membrane to outside the cell where it is in the interstitial space until absorbed by the lymphatic system.
Sertoli cells were also present inside the seminiferous tubules along with leydig's cells within interstitial space (Zidan2009).
Histological analysis did not reveal differences in epididymal morphology of rats, except for the vacuole formation within pseudostratified epithelium following cadmium (Figure 2(b)) and combined cadmium and diazinon exposure in which moreover an enlargement in the interstitial space was found (Figure 2(d)).
Bone marrow perfusion is a physiological process, which can be affected by multiple factors, such as tissue blood flow, capillary capacitance and permeability, interstitial diffusion, interstitial space volume, and venous return [8, 9].
For example, in the summer, when there is no need to trap heat within the double facade, the facade vents open and allow outside air to flush through the interstitial space. Additionally, the interstitial space protects the shading elements, which block solar radiation before it can enter the occupied space.
