CT was at least around ovulatory or mid-cycle, and it increases during secretory phase.
Previously, studies have demonstrated that eccrine sweat glands are innervated by both cholinergic and adrenergic nerves, with cholinergic nerves playing the primary roles.[1],[9] However, it is unknown whether the secretory coils and ducts of eccrine sweat glands are equally innervated by the sympathetic nerve fibers.
We have presented the typical cytologic features of a relatively recently recognised salivary gland tumour which displays cytological, histologic, immunophenotypic, and genetic features similar to secretory breast carcinoma.
This weakening of the immune system arises in part from reduced production of secretory antibodies that protect the nasal mucosa and respiratory tract mucosal surfaces from viral infection.
Endometrial biopsies were performed by clinician gynaecologists as an outpatient procedure using an endometrial sampler during the secretory phase of the menstrual cycle (Z-sampler, Bioteque America Inc., USA).
[7] Findings encountered are endometrial hyperplasia was encountered in 25.3% patients, secretory endometrium was the next commonly observed pattern seen in 24.1% patients, irregular ripening of endometrium in 19.5% patients, followed by proliferative endometrium in 7.6% patients and endometrial carcinoma was seen in 1.8% cases.
Individual cells or parts of the secretory structures were first identified as a region of interest (shortly ROI) and marked by rings or rectangles.
Proteome analysis has revealed that (i) the cytonemes contain bactericides of primary and secondary secretory granules, cytoplasmic proteins such as actin cytoskeleton and S100 proteins, and energy-metabolizing (presumably glycolytic) enzymes and (ii) the content of cytonemes does not depend on agent inducing their formation [20, 21].
EndoC-[beta]H1 [beta]-cells (ENDOCELLS SARL, Paris, France; http://www.endocells.com/) were cultured, and pseudoislets (PIs) were generated and cultured under the same conditions as described previously [10, 11] following the same principles as those for generation of pseudoislets from insulin secretory cell lines of rodent origin [8, 9].

The specimens were then classified into proliferative (PP) or secretory phases (SP).
