  • Amoeba
  • Paramecium and Amoeba possess large contractile vacuoles (average diameter of 13 and 45 µm, respectively), which are relatively comfortable to isolate, manipulate and assay. (wikipedia.org)
  • This article describes a method for the isolation and purification of intact Legionella -containing vacuoles (LCVs) from amoeba and macrophages. (jove.com)
  • sacs
  • Vacuoles are membranous sacs that store many different substances, depending on the organism and its metabolic state. (britannica.com)
  • large
  • We used fluorescent dextrans as fluid phase tracers and observed the cholecystokinin-elicited formation and translocation of large endocytic vacuoles. (pnas.org)
  • A prominent feature of acute pancreatitis is the formation of large cytosolic vacuoles ( 12 , 16 , 29 , 31 , 32 ). (pnas.org)
  • These large vacuoles were located everywhere throughout the thyroid and uterine slides, but only on one level of the stomach biopsy. (histosearch.com)
  • pathways
  • Adding to the complexity of PV biogenesis is new data showing vacuole engagement with autophagic and early secretory pathways. (nih.gov)
  • isolation
  • More recently, new technologies of vacuole isolation led to the demonstration that 1-amino-cyclopropanel-carboxylic acid (ACC), the immediate precursor of the plant hormone (Adams et al. (springer.com)
  • belong
  • The smallest known contractile vacuoles belong to Chlamydomonas, with a diameter of 1.5 µm. (wikipedia.org)
  • Although major morphological differences were recorded by the very first microscopists, it has been commonly assumed that all vacuoles have the same origin and belong to a common group. (plantcell.org)
  • small
  • I am processing small mucosal GI biopsies at a reference path lab with a quick 24 hour turn around time, so we use a quick schedule and have had strange vacuoles appear in the mucosal and connective tissue of many specimens. (histosearch.com)
  • The vacuoles are extremely small. (wikipedia.org)
  • Microvesicular steatosis is characterized by small intracytoplasmic fat vacuoles (liposomes) which accumulate in the cell. (wikipedia.org)
  • concentration
  • The pH in endocytic vacuoles was 5.9 ± 0.1, and the calcium ion concentration was 37 ± 11 μM. (pnas.org)
  • The concentration of nitrate in the vacuole is extremely high (500 mM) even though the sediments in which they live are relatively very low in nitrogen (25 μM). (wikipedia.org)
