Interestingly, infolding can greatly increase the surface area available by as much as two orders of magnitude as compared to a flat surface [41] and this has been recognized in attempts to create an artificial limbal structure [42].
The invasive glands show marked variation of sizes and shapes--from simple, tubular glands to either cystically dilated lumina (Figure 7, A through C), or markedly complex and branched glands with intralumenal papillary infoldings. The tumor is usually deeply invasive, and desmoplastic stromal response surrounding the invasive glands may be seen.

The luminal spaces of the VP glands are lined by a flat mucosa that presents the least amount of infolding relative to the other lobes, or some focal epithelial tufting.

The glands in both these groups were dilated and varied in sizes and shape (Figure-3), changes like epithelial outpouchings and infoldings were also seen in a few cases (Figure-4).
The plasma membrane at the bases of the cells of the tubules exhibits deep basal infoldings into the cells.
The most characteristic feature of intussusceptive angiogenesis in tumor tissues is thought to be the development of protrusions or infoldings of the vessel wall within the lumen [1] (Figure 2).
The most likely source of malignant epithelium in the jaws originates from the infoldings into the jaws of oral epithelium destined to become odontogenic.
The typical prostatic acini possessed papillary infoldings of the luminal epithelium and occasional cribriforming of the glands some degree of corpora amylacea was present (Fig.2a through 2c).

In group B the lumina of the uterine horns were slit like and mostly obliterated by the mucosal infoldings (Fig-4)
Recent POFs are amorphous and clearly show multiple infoldings of thecal and granulose cells Oocytes in the largest batch are 300-550 pm in diameter.
Developmental infoldings may result in defects that can provide a pathway for pulpal pathology.
