Two other prominent epidermal invaginations form laterally at the anterior end.
Occasional small papillary structures or cystic invaginations may be seen.
Within 24 h after oviposition, while the embryos were still within the capsule, gastrulation occurred at the vegetal pole by means of both epiboly and invagination (Figs 10, 11).
7 [[micro]meter] (n = 10) in thickness [ILLUSTRATION FOR FIGURES 2 AND 3 OMITTED], make contact with the hemolymph over most of their surface, which is greatly amplified and is characterized by many invaginations of the plasmalemma; these penetrate deeply into and extensively throughout the septal cell cytoplasm and appear to individually envelop each of the numerous ovoid mitochondria present within the cytoplasm [ILLUSTRATION FOR FIGURE 12 OMITTED].
Cytoplasmic vesicles near invaginations that contain thin fibrils are also typical for fibroblasts.
As early as the onset of invagination, cells emerge from the thinner part of the epithelium and enter the perivitelline space at the animal pole [ILLUSTRATION FOR FIGURE 5B OMITTED].
REAHs are histopathologically characterized by glandular invaginations that originate from the surface respiratory epithelium (3).
Due to the presence of dermal invaginations, the distances from the stratum corneum to the tip of the dermal papillae and to the bottom of the invagination between the papillae, respectively, were determined separately for human skin and the vascularized skin equivalent, which is highlighted in Figure 3b.
The Syagrus romanzofian embryo is elongated, poorly differentiated, and does not present constriction or morpho-anatomical difference that distinguishes where the proximal region ends and the distal region begins, as observed in Figure 4 (i), except for the longitudinal invaginations observed in whole embryos in the distal region (Figure 3).
