I tried to post this in the writing forum but i was not allowed to.


I wonder if anybody could please tell me what the word "prebasal" is defined as..

I can find very little info online. Thanks.

It seems to be a latin word and is used in entomology.

'Prebasal pronotal impression consisting of a pair of distinctly impressed lateral arches; setae of anterior pronotal angles placed somewhat caudad of angle….. Syphraea
Prebasal pronotal impression a single weakly impressed, continuous transverse arch; setae of anterior pronotal angles placed in the angle….. Altica'

From: www.ag.auburn.edu...

Sorry, I couldn't find a definition for it either!

Seems to have something to do with stem cells. Basal cells have to do with skin cancer.



Barrett's metaplasia may arise from reprogramming of p63+/K14–/BS-I-B4– glandular cells or p63+/K14+/BS-I-B4+ basal cells. C and D: in an alternative model, p63–/K14–/BS-I-B4– stem cells can differentiate into ciliated and mucosecretory cells and give rise to p63+/K14–/BS-I-B4– cells. The latter constitute an intermediate stage, prebasal cells, which then mature into p63+/K14+/BS-I-B4+ basal cells.

Basal cells: Small, round cells found in the lower part, or base, of the epidermis, the outer layer of the skin.

You might find out more if you research basal and pre-basal.

The above relates to some kind of beetle experiment, imo it has nothing to do with entomology.

I find it unusuall to find scientists/biologists using words with no definition.

Could find no connection with prebasal relating to basal cells.
It appears we all have basal cells, basal cell carcinoma is a type of skin cancer.

Thanks for the link to the stem cell link, again i find it unusual that they use a word with no clear definition.
