How many cell types form the epithelial lining of the human uterine tubes? Revision of the histological nomenclature of the human tubal epithelium.

Ann Anat 2019 Apr 19. Epub 2019 Apr 19.

Institute of Pathological Anatomy, Faculty of Medicine, Comenius University in Bratislava, Špitálska Street 24, 813 72 Bratislava, Slovakia.

Introduction: Many widely used international histological textbooks claim that the epithelium of the human uterine tube consists of two, three, and, eventually, four types of cells. Most discrepancies among these textbooks relate to debates regarding the presence or absence of basal cells, whether the peg/intercalary cells and secretory cells are the same or distinct cell populations, and if the epithelium contains a population of immunologically active cells (T- and B-lymphocytes, NK cells, macrophages and dendritic cells) or dispersed endocrine cells.

Methods: Uterine tubes were obtained from 22 women (average age: 46. Read More

CLASS I AND CLASS II SMALL LEUCINE-RICH PROTEOGLYCANS IN HUMAN CUTANEOUS PACINIAN CORPUSCLES.

Ann Anat 2019 Apr 18. Epub 2019 Apr 18.

Departamento de Morfología y Biología Celular, Grupo SINPOS Universidad de Oviedo, Spain.

Pacinian corpuscles are onion bulb-like multilayered mechanoreceptors that consist of a complicated structure of axon terminals, Schwann related cells (inner core), endoneural related cells (intermediate layer) and perineurial related cells (outer core-capsule). The cells forming those compartments are continuous and share the properties of that covering the nerve fibers. Small leucine-rich proteoglycans are major proteoglycans of the extracellular matrix and regulate collagen fibrillogenesis, cell signalling pathways and extracellular matrix assembly. Read More

Flap valve of the heart foramen ovale revisited: macroscopic and histologic observations of human near-term fetuses.

Ann Anat 2019 Apr 1;224:8-16. Epub 2019 Apr 1.

Department of Anatomy and Human Embryology, School of Medicine, Complutense University, Madrid, Spain.

We assessed the flap valve of the foramen ovale (FO valve) by examining 30 hearts from human fetuses of gestational age 30-40 weeks. We dissected the hearts, examined their macroscopic morphology, and then prepared semiserial sagittal sections across the valve. Although the primary septum is expected to extend along the left atrial face, eight hearts had a superior rim of the fossa ovalis on the left atrial face that was too thick and high, so there was no smooth continuation with the valve.

Comparative morphology of the primate tongue.

Ann Anat 2019 May 6;223:19-31. Epub 2019 Feb 6.

Department of Anatomy, The Nippon Dental University School of Life Dentistry at Niigata, Niigata, Japan.

To clarify the role of the primate tongue as a means to better understand the evolution of oral function among primates - an example of adaptation within the restricted phylogenetic group - we review the morphological knowledge of the tongues of extant primates in relation to phylogenetic classification. Prosimians tongues are more effective than those of Haplorhini for taking up food with the tongue alone, because they are capable of fine movement when outside the oral cavity. However, the role of the tongue in food uptake has diminished when juxtaposed with progress in hand manipulation of food and tools in Haplorhini, especially with the manipulation of tools by Homininae.

Numerical investigations of bone remodelling around the mouse mandibular molar primordia.

Ann Anat 2019 Mar 30;222:146-152. Epub 2018 Dec 30.

Endowed Chair of Oral Technology, University of Bonn, Bonn, Germany.

The formation of the alveolar bone, which houses the dental primordia, and later the roots of tooth, may serve as a model to approach general questions of alveolar bone formation. In this respect, this study aimed to investigate the potential interactions between the alveolar bone formation and tooth eruption by using finite element (FE) methods, and to figure out whether the expanding tooth systems induce shear stresses that lead to alveolar bone formation. 3D geometric surface models were generated from the 3D histological data of the heads of mice (C57 Bl/6J) ranging from stages embryonic (E) to postnatal (P) stages E15 to P20 using the reconstruction software 3-Matic.

Lorenzo Alibardi

Ann Anat 2019 Mar 20;222:114-119. Epub 2018 Dec 20.

Comparative Histolab Padova, Italy; Dept Biology Univ Bologna, Italy. Electronic address:

Organ regeneration occurs in anamniotes (fish and amphibians) while is absent in amniotes (reptiles, birds and mammals). An evolutionary hypothesis is presented to explain the loss of organ regeneration in amniotes. The aquatic life in fish or the initial aquatic and later terrestrial life in amphibians requires complex life cycles after embryonic development. Read More

Histological comparison between laser microtome sections and ground specimens of implant-containing tissues.

Ann Anat 2019 Mar 16;222:153-157. Epub 2018 Dec 16.

Department of Orthodontics Carl Gustav Carus Campus, Technische Universität Dresden, Dresden, Germany.

Evaluation of bone regeneration and peri-implant bone apposition can only be accomplished using laboratory techniques that allow assessment of decalcified hard tissue. It is known that 5-15μm thick sections can be prepared with the cutting-grinding technique, but their production causes a high material loss (≥0.5mm) between two sections and requires years of training and experience.

Ann Anat 2018 Dec 7. Epub 2018 Dec 7.

Institute of Anatomy, Faculty of Medicine, LMU Munich, Pettenkoferstr. 11, 80336 Munich, Germany. Electronic address:

Cell-cell contacts are crucial for intercellular cohesion and formation of endothelial and epithelial barriers. Desmosomes are the adhesive contacts providing mechanical strength to epithelial intercellular adhesion and therefore are most abundant in tissues subjected to high mechanical stress such as the epidermis and heart muscle. Desmogleins (Dsg) besides intercellular adhesion serve as signalling hubs regulating cell behaviour. Read More
