Mammalian cells
By Margaret O. on 09. March 2020 for The Mammalian Cell

It's detailed for histology and he refers to the old teaching which is important for me who studied many years back so that I can be alerted to the changes I need to note.

Great deconstruction of connective tissue
By Eleonora M. on 05. March 2020 for Connective Tissue

best way to explain the mesenchyme, introducing stem cells and stressing most important points

Stem cells, Perycites, Epithelial cells or Smooth muscle cells.
By Eleonora M. on 02. March 2020 for Cells: Adult Stem Cell Niches, Lymphocyte and Plasma Cell

Really found this clear and I have learned that there are compartments of stem cells in our body (intestine and perycites)
