The epithelial cells of the spermaduct wall have cilia on the dissociative side.
This is an unfortunate name, because they are not cilia but long protoplasmic extensions.
Distichia (including ectopic cilia) is an eyelash that arises from an abnormal spot on the eyelid.
The results show that the gill surface of all five species have frontal cilia,lateral cilia and laterofrontal cirri.
In addition,a new structure,frontal cirrus between the frontal cilia and laterofrontal cirri,is found only on the gill surface of Corbicula fluminea.
Actin and myoglobulin are the compositions building muscles' stretching function. Microtubulin is the basic substance which provides the flagellum and cilium the function of movement.
Also, minute hairs called cilia line the breathing passages, wave gently and sweep matter out of the respiratory tract.
The delicate hair-like cilia in the airways and lungs start recovering within weeks, and are restored after 9 months, improving resistance to infection.
The delicate, hair-like structures inside the lungs known as cilia, which help to fight infections, will have recovered from the toll of cigarette smoke.
Around this time, many former smokers notice a decrease in the frequency of lung infections because the healed cilia can do their job more easily.
Last year researchers found that hairlike cilia on this special bunch of cells began to beat in unison, pointing toward what will later become the left side.
Some of the only parts of the body whose motions aren't governed by the muscular system are sperm cells, the hair-like cilia in our airways, and certain white blood cells.
Air enters the body through the nose and passes through the nasal cavity, which is lined with a mucous embrane and fine hairs (cilia) to help filter out foreign bodies, as well as to warm and moisten the air.
