Acute Exposure Guideline Levels for Selected Airborne Chemicals: Vol 1

Within the Bhopal catastrophe of 1984, nearly 2,000 citizens residing close to a chemical plant have been killed and 20,000 extra suffered irreversible harm to their eyes and lungs following the unintentional unlock of methyl isocyanate. This tragedy served to concentration overseas awareness at the want for governments to spot unsafe ingredients and help neighborhood groups in making plans tips to care for emergency exposures.

Example text

Ependymal cells abut layers of astrocytes, which in turn envelop neurons, neurites and vascular components. In addition to neurons and glial cells, such as astrocytes and oligodendrocytes, the normal CNS parenchyma contains blood vessels and microglial cells, the resident macrophages of the CNS. The PNS and the autonomic nervous system consist of bundles of myelinated and nonmyelinated axons, extending to and from the CNS, which are intimately enveloped by Schwann cells, the PNS counterpart of oligodendrocytes.

The complex packing achieved by the processes and cell bodies of astrocytes underscores their involvement in brain metabolism. Although astrocytes traditionally have been subdivided into protoplasmic and fibrous astrocytes [4], these two forms probably represent the opposite ends of a spectrum of the same cell type. However, Raff et al. [23] have suggested that the two groups might derive from different progenitors and that the progenitor of the fibrous astrocyte is the same as that of the oligodendrocyte, although recent evidence supports a lineage for myelinating oligodendrocytes involving motor neurons [24].

The nucleochromatin is invariably pale, with little dense heterochromatin. In some neurons, such as the cerebellar granule cells, the nucleoplasm may show more differentiation and dense heterochromatin. The nucleolus is vesiculated and clearly delineated from the rest of the nucleoplasm. It usually contains two textures: the pars fibrosa, which are fine bundles of filaments, and the pars granulosa, in which dense granules predominate. An additional juxtaposed structure, found in neurons of the female of some species, is the nucleolar satellite, or sex chromatin, which consists of dense but loosely packed, coiled filaments.
