For stab injury, a sterile 25 gauge stainless steel needle (outer diameter of 0, 51 mm) was inserted immediately next to the dorsal vein and lowered 1.2 mm into the dorsal funiculus. For hemisection injury, a microlesion knife (Fisher Scientific, Pittsburgh, PA) marked at 1.2 mm from the tip was lowered into the spinal cord at a depth of 1.2 mm from the dorsal-most point and drawn laterally across the dorsal aspect of the spinal cord.
In the rat CST, approximately twenty-five thousand axons descend in the dorsal funiculus in search of target cells.
Sucrose produced in the photosynthetic tissue is translocated to the developing cotton fruit through pholem tissue and the funiculus (van Iersel et al., 1995).
The ovule is surrounded by an axil, which is an outgrowth of the funiculus as in angiosperm genera such as Celastrus.

Por otro lado, existe el termino Funiculus umbilicalis glomeratus [E6.0.2.5.1.3.3], pero este no identifica a la estructura cordon umbilical (inexistente en la TE en latin), por lo cual se procedio a eliminar la palabra glomeratus, que dando solo como Funiculus umbilicalis, cuya traduccion al espanol es cordon umbilical.
Axonal projections are formed along two pathways: 90 to 95% of the axons cross the pyramid, extending toward the dorsal funiculus on the opposite side, and the remaining axons extend toward the ventral spinal cord on the same side without crossing the pyramid [24, 25].
Axons of spinal dorsal horn neurons decussate in the anterior white commissure and travel in the ventrolateral funiculus (spinothalamic tract; black line) or the dorsolateral funiculus (spino-parabrachio-amygdaloid tract; gray line) to different targets in the brain.
