The computing time linearly increases with the cell number N since the limiting operation is the numerical integration of the free-space Green's tensor over the cuboidal cell (instead of an increasing time as [N.sup.3] when the limiting factor is the resolution of the self consistent Dyson's Eq.
When the lining of a hidrocystoma becomes thicker or more complex (beyond the usual attenuated double layer of cuboidal cells), the term cystadenoma is used.
Caption: Figure 3: (a) The tumor consisted of predominantly a large cystic space lined by either papillary projections or a single layer of cuboidal cells and surrounding tumor nests (hematoxylin and eosin (H&E) stain, magnification = 2 x).
The cuboidal cells lining the pseudopapillae were strongly positive for glial fibrillary acidic protein [GFAP, [Figure 1]e and vimentin but were negative for neuron-specific enolase (NSE) and neuronal nuclear antigen [NeuN, [Figure 1]f, suggesting glial differentiation.
Caption: FIGURE 2: Cohesive cuboidal cells with minimal amount of cytoplasm, round uniform nuclei with regular contour, finely granular chromatin, no nucleoli, and no mitotic activity (H&E; 200x).
The epithelium also shows a well-defined, palisaded basal layer made of hyperchromatic columnar to cuboidal cells. The luminal surface displays a usually corrugated parakeratotic epithelial layer with frequent presence of a keratinous material within the lumen.
In all subcultures, trophoblasts were morphologically visible as large cuboidal cells under phasecontrast microscope (Figure 1).
Eccrine hidrocystoma also shows dilatation of sweat glands with solitary or multiple cysts lined by a double layer of cuboidal cells on histology, but dilatation of dermal vessels and perivascular mononuclear infiltrate is not seen [4, 10].
A pathognomonic sign is the presence of large columnar or cuboidal cells in the composition of the epithelial lining showing a decapitation secretion, usually associated with an outer layer of flat myoepithelial cells [9,10].
Proximal tubules showed dark eosinophilic cuboidal cells and prominent brush border.
Two cell types can be found: cuboidal cells and round cells [5].
Secondary follicle (FII) (an oocyte surrounded by more than one layer of cuboidal cells but with antrum andzonapellucida in between).
