  2. A follicle is composed of the developing egg cell and the support cells that surround and nourish it.
  3. The follicle is stimulated to release the ovum by a hormone called FSH (Follicle Stimulating Hormone), which is made by the pituitary gland.
  4. Each follicle is lined by a layer of epithelial cells, and each follicle contains a central storage area or lumen filled with colloid protein.

  2. However there is no evidence that demodex mites are the cause of any type of hair loss and they appear to play a beneficial role in the follicle. (Web site)

  1. Attached to the follicle is a sebaceous gland, a tiny sebum -producing gland found everywhere except on the palms, lips and soles of the feet.

Opening

  1. Approved for use to treat hair loss under the name Rogaine, Minoxidil is believed to stimulate hair growth by opening the potassium channels in the follicle. (Web site)

Presence

  1. Here, we report the presence of PDL progenitors in mouse dental follicle (MDF) cells. (Web site)
  2. The clinical finding in impetigo is the presence of pustules on the ventrum which are not centred on the hair follicle. (Web site)

Cycle

  1. A cycle begins when a woman begins taking fertility drugs or having her ovaries monitored for follicle production.

Fruit

  1. Fruit a follicle; valves plano-concave, coriaceous to somewhat woody.

Maturation

  1. The cells that surround the ovum during development and maturation of the ovarian follicle. (Web site)

Boil

  1. A boil starts out as an infection of a hair follicle, the pore through which a hair emerges. (Web site)
  2. A Boil (or furuncle) is a deep infective folliculitis (infection of the hair follicle).

Pituitary Gland

  1. Hypopituitarism The pituitary gland can act directly or indirectly on hair follicle activity. (Web site)

Seeds

  1. For example, milkweeds produce a fruit type, known as a follicle,[7] that splits open along one side to release the seeds.

Progenitor Cells

  1. Progenitor cells from dental follicle are able to form cementum matrix in vivo. (Web site)

Connective

  1. At the base of the follicle is a large structure that is called the papilla.[ 1] The papilla is made up mainly of connective tissue and a capillary loop. (Web site)

Subcutaneous

  1. A furuncle (boil) is a staphylococcal infection of a follicle with involvement of subcutaneous tissue. (Web site)

Species

  1. The follicle opens to release the seed by splitting along the suture, and in some species each valve splits too. (Web site)
  2. The head and lower jaw are covered with knobs called tubercle s, which are actually hair follicle s and are characteristic of the species.

Banksia

  1. Unusually for Banksia, each follicle contains just one seed. (Web site)
  2. The fruit of Banksia is a woody follicle embedded in the axis of the inflorescence. (Web site)

Whitehead

  1. Whitehead: An acne lesion that forms when oil and skin cells block the opening of a hair follicle.

Corpus Luteum

  1. The remaining cells of the follicle shrink into a hormone producing mass of cells called a corpus luteum.

Anagen

  1. Anagen is followed by catagen, a period of controlled regression of the hair follicle. (Web site)

Hair Shaft

  1. The light energy converts to heat once absorbed into the hair shaft thus damaging the follicle and preventing it from growing another hair.
  2. Because there is a limit to the time a follicle stays in anagen, there is also a limit to the length of its product, the hair shaft. (Web site)

  2. It is organized into three parts: the enamel organ, the dental papilla and the dental follicle. (Web site)

  2. The dental follicle gives rise to three important entities: cementoblasts, osteoblasts, and fibroblasts. (Web site)

Layers

  1. The follicle grows as the layers of granulosa cells increases; growth of the oocyte also contributes.

Epidermis

  1. Therefore the infundibulum is that part of the hair follicle that extends from the epidermis to the opening of the sebaceous gland duct. (Web site)
  2. The follicular stem cells can give rise to both the hair follicle and to the epidermis. (Web site)

Stimulating Hormone

  2. This, combined with a lack of Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH), renders many men sterile during a cycle. (Web site)
  3. Follicle stimulating hormone is also used to stimulate the development of multiple eggs for in vitro fertilization. (Web site)

Skin

  2. It looks like acne with little rings of inflammation surrounding the opening of a hair follicle. (Web site)
