While studying the basal lamina
, BioStratum's collaborating researchers at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, Sweden discovered that laminin-5 is involved in the migration of most epithelial cells as well as epithelial cell derived cancers.
Each consists of a single layer of endothelial cells and their basal lamina
Laminins are a group of high molecular weight glycoproteins that help with the formation of the basal lamina
(or basement membrane), which is a type of extracellular matrix.
Although in some areas, these interstitial Cajal-like cells were observed to have basal lamina
like homogenous and noncontinuous extracellular substance deposition, it was realized that these cells generally do not have a distinct basal lamina
similar with the fibroblasts (Fig.
Focal basal lamina
production was present in the tumor from patient 2.
Normal dystroglycan is modified with a unique sugar chain that allows the protein to "glue" muscle membranes to the basal lamina
-- a tough layer of extracellular proteins.
multispinata consists of a spongy acellular bone tissue and thin basal lamina
, but our new taxon has flattened bone cell lacunae forming the lamellar structure of basal plates.
9, 20) between the basal lamina
and the layer of retinular cells.
To determine thickness of the OE, a volume per unit area of basal lamina
(cubic micrometers per square micrometer) was then calculated using the following formula for arithmetic mean thickness ([tau]):
