K18 occurs in all single-layer epithelial cells such as the gut, urinary tract, or respiratory tract and in parenchymal cells like hepatocytes or cholangiocytes [8].
In summary, the present study shows that SW therapy enhances uptake of mitochondria into lung epithelial and parenchymal cells and that SW-assisted mitochondrial therapy offers additional protection to the lung architecture against ARDS-induced injury.

Parenchymal Cells: The distinguishing or specific cells of an organ or gland that are contained in and supported by the connective tissue; parenchymal cells of the liver are the hepatocytes.
Hence, it is worthwhile to take up a detailed microscopic study of human parathyroid glands in various age groups with special focus on parenchymal cells. As chief cells are the secretory cells, detailed study of their age related changes will be helpful in analysing the reason behind the higher occurrence of osteoporosis, nephropathy and other clinical conditions related with hyperparathyroidism with advancing age.
The last phase (fibroatrophic phase) is characterized by progressive fibrosis presenting with loss of parenchymal cells (1, 2).
PCT is an acute-phase hormokine released by the parenchymal cells in patients with invasive bacterial infections [5].
Cisplatin is cleared by the kidney by both glomerular filtration and tubular secretion and its concentrations within the kidney exceed those in blood suggesting an active accumulation of drug by renal parenchymal cells. It damages the proximal tubules, specifically the S3 segment of the outer medullary stripe, while the mitochondrial swelling and nuclear pallor occur in the distal nephron.
Mesenchymal stromal cells (MSCs) represent the second stem cell population residing in bone marrow (BM) [1, 2], wherein they provide both the reservoir for skeletal cell turn-over and "the soil" for parenchymal cells, that is, hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs), "the seeds." MSCs are endowed with extensive proliferation, three months or longer in vitro; the ability to differentiate into at least four lineages, osteoblasts, chondroblasts, adipoblasts, and reticular stromal cells supporting HSCs; and the capability to produce large amounts of multiple growth factors [1, 2] underlying their antiapoptotic, immune-regulator, and nurturing potential [1-3].
BDL for 15 days induced significant fibrosis based on picosirius red staining, which stains collagen proteins in parenchymal cells (Figure 1(b)).
During the course of bacterial sepsis, further procalcitonin secretion by parenchymal cells of various organs results in a burst of procalcitonin plasma concentrations of up to 100,000-fold [7, 9, 10].
