Electron microscopic investigation of hyaline bodies in odontogenic cysts

Journal of Oral Pathology
N G el-Labban

Abstract

With the light microscope, hyaline bodies of Rushton may appear lamellar or granular. In this investigation, the ultrastructures of both lamellar and granular forms were studied in formalin fixed material, and in specimens fixed in osmium tetroxide. The lamellar type was composed of alternating electron dense and electron lucent layers, the outermost layer always being electron dense. The granular type was composed of amorphous material in which fragments of red blood cells could be seen. Some hyaline bodies were partly granular and partly lamellar. The surfaces of the epithelial cells apposed to both types showed large numbers of hemidesmosomes, but no basal lamina was seen. The amorphous material in the granular hyaline bodies appeared very similar to the substance of the degenerating red blood cells, and extravasated red cells were commonly found in the adjacent connective tissue. The results suggest that the granular type is formed from degenerating red blood cells, and that the lamellar pattern may result from segregation of components within the mass rather than by an incremental form of growth. No support was found for the hypotheses that hyaline bodies are keratinous or a secretory product of the epithelial cells.

COVID-19

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Neural Activity: Imaging

Imaging of neural activity in vivo has developed rapidly recently with the advancement of fluorescence microscopy, including new applications using miniaturized microscopes (miniscopes). This feed follows the progress in this growing field.

The Tendon Seed Network

Tendons are rich in the extracellular matrix and are abundant throughout the body providing essential roles including structure and mobility. The transcriptome of tendons is being compiled to understand the micro-anatomical functioning of tendons. Discover the latest research pertaining to the Tendon Seed Network here.

Myocardial Stunning

Myocardial stunning is a mechanical dysfunction that persists after reperfusion of previously ischemic tissue in the absence of irreversible damage including myocardial necrosis. Here is the latest research.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Incretins

Incretins are metabolic hormones that stimulate a decrease in glucose levels in the blood and they have been implicated in glycemic regulation in the remission phase of type 1 diabetes. Here is the latest research.

Chromatin Regulation and Circadian Clocks

The circadian clock plays an important role in regulating transcriptional dynamics through changes in chromatin folding and remodelling. Discover the latest research on Chromatin Regulation and Circadian Clocks here.

Long COVID-19

“Long Covid-19” describes illness in patients who are reporting long-lasting effects of the SARS-CoV-19 infection, often long after they have recovered from acute Covid-19. Ongoing health issues often reported include low exercise tolerance and breathing difficulties, chronic tiredness, and mental health problems such as post-traumatic stress disorder and depression. This feed follows the latest research into Long Covid.

Spatio-Temporal Regulation of DNA Repair

DNA repair is a complex process regulated by several different classes of enzymes, including ligases, endonucleases, and polymerases. This feed focuses on the spatial and temporal regulation that accompanies DNA damage signaling and repair enzymes and processes.
