• finial
  • The traditional components of a stone (or bronze) lantern are, from top to bottom: Hōju or hōshu (宝珠, literally jewel) The onion-shaped part at the very top of the finial. (wikipedia.org)
  • Cells
  • Astrocytes are star-shaped glial cells that have also been observed to turn into neurons by virtue of the stem cell characteristic pluripotency. (wikipedia.org)
  • A second reason, given by D'Arcy Wentworth Thompson, is that the shape simply results from the process of individual bees putting cells together: somewhat analogous to the boundary shapes created in a field of soap bubbles. (wikipedia.org)
  • The three-dimensional geometry of a honeycomb cell The shape of the cells is such that two opposing honeycomb layers nest into each other, with each facet of the closed ends being shared by opposing cells. (wikipedia.org)
  • Opposing layers of honeycomb cells fit together Individual cells do not show this geometric perfection: in a regular comb, deviations of a few percent from the "perfect" hexagonal shape occur. (wikipedia.org)
  • In transition zones between the larger cells of drone comb and the smaller cells of worker comb, or when the bees encounter obstacles, the shapes are often distorted. (wikipedia.org)
  • Owing to their late birth date, these interneurons populate the cortex only after the majority of other interneurons and pyramidal cells are already in place and have started to functionally integrate. (jove.com)
  • small
  • These tetrahedra have a pyramidal shape, with a relatively small, positively charged silicon cation (Si +4 ) in the center and four larger, negatively charged oxygen anions (O − 2 ) at the corners, producing a net charge of − 4. (encyclopedia.com)
  • Thus
  • Thus, the substituents of ring atoms exist in an eclipsed conformation in cyclopropanes and between gauche and eclipsed in cyclobutanes, contributing to higher ring strain energy in the form of Van der Waals repulsion. (wikipedia.org)
  • form
  • Feldspars include the alkali feldspars microcline and orthoclase, both of which have the same chemical formula (KAlSi 3 O 8 ), but which form in progressively lower-temperature bodies of magma within the earth , and also form crystals with different characteristic shapes. (encyclopedia.com)
  • Internal alterations have been extensive although evidence of the original two bedrooms, living room, waiting room and office is presumed to exist, especially in the form of early timber ceiling linings and cornices. (wikipedia.org)
  • another
  • The town continued to exist for at least another 150 years, well into the Thirteenth Dynasty, when it was close to a royal necropolis of the tombs of Neferhotep I and Sobekhotep IV (fl. (wikipedia.org)
  • properties
  • To understand how the optical properties of these heterostructures are affected by this shape, we investigated the linear polarization of the luminescence from 0-dimensional localization centers included in their active layer. (osapublishing.org)
