endo-, end-

(Greek: within, inside, into, in, on, inner)

1. A reference to, or pertaining to, endosymbiosis.
2. That which lives within a body, or cells, of another organism; forming an endosymbiosis.
The inner tissue of an anther or a moss capsule.
Resembling endothelium or the layer of epithelial cells that lines the cavities of the heart and of the blood and lymph vessels and the serous cavities of the body, originating from the mesoderm.

The mesoderm is the middle of the three germ layers or the layers of cells comprising the early embryo; which gives rise to the musculoskeletal, blood, vascular and urinogenital systems, to connective tissue (including that of dermis) and contributes to some glands.

1. A tumor of the cells that line internal body surfaces.
2. A tumor (usually benign) which is formed from tissues of the endothelium (layer of epithelial cells that lines the cavities of the heart and of the blood and lymph vessels and the serous cavities of the body).
Proliferation of endothelium.
A specific toxin that acts on the endothelium of capillaries and small veins, producing hemorrhage.
The layer of epithelial cells that lines the cavities of the heart, the lumina of blood and lymph vessels, and the serous cavities of the body; it originates from the mesoderm.
A warm-blooded animal; such as, an organism that maintains its body temperature by producing heat within the body.
1. Maintaining a constant body temperature despite changes in the temperature of the environment.
2. A description of a chemical reaction in which heat is absorbed.
1. Characterized by or accompanied by the absorption of heat, as a chemical reaction accompanied by absorption of heat and to which heat must be supplied if it is to proceed.
2. Storing up heat or energy in a potential form.
1. Describing an organism; such as, a mammal or bird, that maintains its body temperature at a stable level largely independent of (and typically higher than) the ambient temperature, primarily using generation of heat internal to the animal.
2. Heat absorbing; as, in a chemical reaction.
endothermic reaction, endothermic process
1. A chemical reaction during which heat is absorbed.
2. Warm-blooded animals; such as, birds or mammals; maintaining a body temperature largely independent of the temperature of the environment; homoiothermic.
3. Characterized by, or attended with, the absorption of heat.
4. Also known as homoiotherm.
Heating of the body tissues due to their resistance to the passage of high-frequency electromagnetic radiation, electric currents, or ultrasonic waves.

Tissues may be either simply warmed (medical endothermy) or coagulated and destroyed (surgical endothermy).

A dermatophyte whose growth and spore production are confined chiefly within the shaft of the hair, without formation of conspicuous external spores; such fungi include Trichophyton tonsurans and Trichophyton violaceum.
Pertaining to the inner ear.
