New PDF release: L’ecocardiografia nella valvulopatia mitralica

Questo quantity di ecocardiografia si propone di trattare il tema della valvola mitrale nei suoi aspetti normali e patologici, aggiornandone los angeles trattazione in base ai più recenti sviluppi della tecnologia. L’approccio interdisciplinare nella diagnosi e nella scelta dei trattamenti ha caratterizzato il taglio medico-divulgativo dell’opera e il linguaggio chiaro e conciso del testo, rivolto anche ai cardiologi clinici e non ai soli ecocardiografisti.

Example text

A quite distinctive type of chloroplast is found in Glenodinium foliaceum (Dodge, 1975b; Jeffrey and Vesk, 1976) and P. balticum (Tomas and Cox, 1973). Here there is a distinct girdle lamella, there are connections between adjacent lamellae, and an internal pyrenoid is present. These two species contain the carotenoid pigment fucoxanthin and have a supernumerary nucleus in addition to the typical mesokaryotic type. As the chloroplasts and extra nucleus appear to be completely enclosed by a single-membrane envelope, it has been suggested that they represent a symbiont from the Chrysophyceae (Tomas and Cox, 1973).

As in members of the Chrysophyta, the envelope consists of four membranes, two belonging to the chloroplast and two being derived from the cell endoplasmic reticulum system. Uniquely, there is a substantial space or compartment between the two sets of membranes. Here, starch grains of the food reserve are located on the inner side of the plastids and, more interestingly, adjacent to each chloroplast there is a granular nucleuslike structure which has been termed the cryptonucleus (Greenwood, 1974) or nucleomorph (Figure 5).

The types of appendages fall into the following categories: (1) stiff tubular hairs (mastigonemes) usually having fine appendages at the tips and may have easily lost fibrous lateral appendages (Bouck, 1971), usually found in two lateral rows (Chrysophyceae and Chloromonadophyceae) but in only one row on one flagellum of some cryptophytes; (2) fine hairs which may be long and form a single row (Dinophyceae and Euglenophyceae) (Figure 6), or may be in two rows as on the dinophycean longitudinal flagellum, or may be very sparse as in Chlamydomonas and on the posterior flagellum of Ochromonas; (3) brittle hairs which are easily detached, as in the Prasinophyceae (Figure 7) and possibly in the supposed chrysophyte Pedinella\ (4) scales, which were initially associated almost exclusively with the very scaly flagella in the Prasinophyceae but more recently have been demonstrated on the flagella oiSynura (Chrysophyceae) (Hibberd, 1973), Oxyrrhis (Dinophyceae) (Clarke and Pennick, 1972), and spermatozoids of a number of green algae such as Coleochaetae and Chara (Moestrup, 1970).
