J-g complex --> juxtaglomerular complex

a complex consisting of the juxtaglomerular cells, which are modified smooth muscle cells in the wall of the afferent glomerular arteriole and sometimes also the efferent arteriole; extraglomerular mesangium lacis cells, which are located in the angle between the afferent and efferent glomerular arterioles; the macula densa of the distal convoluted tubule; and granular epithelial peripolar cells located at the angle of reflection of the parietal to the visceral capsule of the renal corpuscle; believed to provide some feedback control of extracellular fluid volume and glomerular filtration rate.

Synonym: j-g complex, juxtaglomerular apparatus.

Biological Immortality and Immortalised Cell lines

... cells with similar property of those found in a multicellular organism in vitro. Immortalised cell lines are widely used as a simple model for complex biological systems, and for the analysis of the biochemistry and cell biology of mammalian cells. This simplifies analysis of the biology of ...

holographic origin of life

... have the case that there were chemicals in proto-earth reacting with each other arbitrarily (in random) and this system was becoming more and more complex. The same things happens in a flask with chemicals if we continuously provide external energy in the long term. The system will react arbitrarily ...
