Which Joe gave his name to ‘sloppy joes’? We look at five interesting sandwiches and their lexical origins.
The chemistry of living cells, especially as studied microscopically.
- ‘The laboratory's role in identifying leukemic blasts by morphology and cytochemistry remains important for initial diagnosis.’
- ‘Until recently, visualization of cytoskeletal filaments was mainly limited to immunofluorescent staining of fixed cells or fluorescent analog cytochemistry for living cells.’
- ‘Fluorescence microscopy is less invasive than electron microscopy and can be applied to living cells through the use of green fluorescent protein-fusion proteins or fluorescence analog cytochemistry.’
- ‘With no tissue remaining, only destained sections can be used for cytochemistry or immunohistochemistry, which might impair the final evaluation.’
- ‘The relationship between the timing of these changes in the cytochemistry of the chalazal cells and the timing of the changes in grain water content and grain dry weight which occur during grain development has not been established.’
- ‘Instruction in cytology and cytochemistry would follow later in both the lab and the classroom.’
