Examples

  • The greater part of his book, indeed, is devoted to a study of the histogenesis of the different organs of the body; he is bent chiefly upon unravelling the part which each germ-layer takes in the formation of each tissue and organ.

  • Cytogenesis and histogenesis are briefly considered in the case of many tissues studied.

  • Cytogenesis and histogenesis are briefly considered in the case of many tissues studied; and the relation of the whole subject of histology to pathology is never lost sight of.

  • The chick is used for the primary relations of the systems to one another; and this is followed by the study of pig embryos, where each system is taken up separately and the organology and histogenesis of its parts are studied.

    University of Virginia Record

  • The last larval cuticle, instead of being as usual worked off and cast, after separation from the underlying structures, becomes hard and firm, forming a protective case (_puparium_) within which by the processes of histolysis and histogenesis already described the organs of the pupa and imago are built up.

  • The process of tissue-destruction is known as 'histolysis'; the rebuilding process is called 'histogenesis.'

    The Life-Story of Insects

  • These phenotypes are distinct from BR mutants which are dwarfed and less severely affected in cellular patterning and histogenesis; though the BR signalling pathway is required for wild-type vascular differentiation
