Histology and Cell Biology

The part on telephone biology has been drastically improved and now contains details on either the structural and practical points of the subject.

Pathology of Incipient Neoplasia, 3rd Ed.

Many malignant tumors have a morphologically recognizable precursor lesion. As screening and early detection have more advantageous our skill to realize lesions at more and more past phases of development, an elevated variety of precancerous lesions are noticeable by means of pathologists. regrettably, a scarcity of uniform histologic standards for precursors present in many organs could make diagnostic interpretation tricky.

It should be noted that the other phagocytic cells of the body, the neutrophil granulocytes of the blood, are not included in the RE system by definition. This is because they cannot perform the same type of phagocytosis generally associated with the RE system. THE RETICULO­ ENDOTHELIAL SYSTEM The ground substance varies in consistency from an amorphous gel forming the translucent material of hyaline cartilage to the glairy fluid found in the synovial joint cavities. It is in the molecular meshes of the ground substance that the extracellular, or interstitial, fluid is contained.

Glycoproteins. These are proteins that contain a firmly bound compo­ nent of carbohydrate. Mucoproteins. These are loose combinations of protein with acid mucopolysaccharides; the latter consist of polymers of hexose sugars containing amino groups. The best-known acid mucopolysaccharide is hyaluronic acid. The mucoproteins are largely responsible for the viscosity of the intercellular ground substance. The enzyme hyaluronidase, which is produced by strepto­ cocci, depolymerizes hyaluronic acid and renders the ground substance more watery.
