During this e-book, Harold Morowitz offers a brand new thought at the beginning of lifestyles on the earth 4 billion years in the past.

This speculation offers a framework for reexamining the emergence of cellularity.

Example text

In some cases, there is an increase in the cytoplasmic volume density of lysosomes unassociated with significant alteration Chapter 1 of other subcellular organelles. A few studies have indicated that these substances may induce fibrosis; others have found vascular changes which may cause cell necrosis and tumor shrinkage but direct cytotoxic effects have not been documented in vitro. No inhibition of hormone synthesis has been identified, as indicated by reduction in the cytoplasmic volume density of rough endoplasmic reticulum or Golgi complexes; this suggestion confirms molecular studies which have shown no suppression of mRNA in somatostatinexposed nontumorous adenohypophysial cells [263] or tumors [264].

Corticotrophs are the first cell type to differentiate in the fetal pituitary [220,221]; however, they are found in significantly decreased numbers in anencephaly [276]; it has been suggested that after autonomous differentiation, they are dependent on hypothalamic factors for normal growth and development. Their numbers do not vary with age or changes in the hormonal environment; however, they do develop specific morphologic features that reflect changes in endocrine homeostasis. In the human pituitary exposed to glucocorticoid excess due to administration of exogenous corticosteroids or any cause of endogenous glucocorticoid hypersecretion (including ectopic secretion of ACTH), corticotrophs undergo a distinctive morphologic alteration known as Crooke’s hyaline change [195].

These cells may show ill-defined purple coloration with trichrome stains using aniline blue; this may lead to misinterpretation as basophilia. The phosphotungstic acid–hematoxylin method is helpful to demonstrate mitochrondrial abundance. Oncocytes showing ultrastructural features of differentiated adenohypophysial cells may contain the appropriate immunoreactive hormone. The majority of oncocytes, which are thought to be derived from null cells of gonadotrophs contain no immunoreactive hormones or may contain a-subunit, FSH LH.
