celli-, cell, cells
(Latin: a storeroom, a chamber, a closet; by extension, of or pertaining to a cell, a microscopic protoplasmic mass made up of a nucleus enclosed in a semipermeable membrane)
A nevus is a birthmark, mole, or any other kind of growth or mark on the skin that a person is born with.
2. Any of the basophilic chromophil cells located in the anterior lobe of the pituitary gland.
2. A mass of protoplasm containing a nucleus or nuclear material; the structural unit of all animals and plants.
Cells and their products make up all the tissues of the body. Cells carry out all the body's functional activities, and their structures and forms are closely correlated with their functions.
Cells arise only from pre-existing cells; new cells arise by cell division. Growth and development result from the increase in numbers of cells and their differentiation into different types of tissues.
Specialized germ cells, the spermatozoa and ova, contain in their nuclei the genes for hereditary characteristics.
2. Small, hollow places: Honeycombs are made up of connecting cells joined to each other.
3. A unit of living matter: With the fine new microscope, the scientist could study the cell matter of the plant.
4. The container which holds the material to produce electricity: The mechanic had to add water to each battery cell so the car would start again.
2. To make things available to be purchased: This is one of the few stores that sells the type of materials Carol needed to repair sections of her work room.
3. To persuade someone to accept or to approve of something or someone: James told his brother that he would have to sell himself at the interview if he wanted to get the job that he was applying for.
The young guy was caught trying to sell stolen property for which he was sentenced to spend time in a small cell at the local jail.
While Ivan was there studying at the tech school, he invented a new solar cell for producing electricity which he now sells over the internet.
Unlike neurons, glial cells do not conduct electrical impulses. The glial cells surround neurons and provide support for and insulation between them.
Glial cells are the most abundant cell types in the central nervous system. Types of glial cells include oligodendrocytes, astrocytes, ependymal cells, Schwann cells, microglia, and satellite cells.
2. A nerve cell body having little or no Nissl substance (granular endoplasmic reticulum and ribosomes) visible but a nucleus that stains intensely.
2. The morphological transformations including growth, alterations of germinal layers, and differentiation of cells and tissues during development.
3. The set of procedures by which individual cells or cell populations undergo changes in shape or position incident to organismic development.
4. The emergence of shape in cells, tissues, or the entire embryo.
