The appearance of gaming on Indian reservations has created a brand new type of tribal politics over the last 3 a long time. Now armed with frequently huge monetary assets, Indigenous peoples have adjusted their political ideas from a spotlight at the judicial method and the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) to 1 that at once lobbies country and federal governments and non-Indigenous electorate.

MUSCULAR PARTIALLY MUSCULAR NON-MUSCULAR 8 CAPILLARY ARTERY LUMEN Fic,. 3. Additional features of the alveolar precapillary unit demonstrated by electron microscopy. In the muscle-free regions of the wall a pericyte and an intermediate cell are found in the non-muscular and partially muscular artery, respectively. HYPOXIA AND PULMONARY ENDOTHELIUM lungs we have examined - 41 rat, pig, sheep and dog (Rendas et a1 1979a, Hislop & Reid 1981, Meyrick & Reid 1979a) (Figs. 1, 2 and 3). By distending the cir- culation under standard conditions before fixation one can identify an artery by its size.

Scanning electron micrographs show filamentous protrusions from endothelial cells (see Fig. 4b, p 281). Do you see these? Sirnionescu: We sometimes see protrusions of the endothelium in thinsectioned specimens, but fewer than observed in scanning microscopy. In the latter case the high frequency may be related to the method of preparing the tissue. Datta: You mentioned the lung macrophages and their high content of hydrolytic enzymes, including esterases; alveolar type I1 cells have all these hydrolytic activities as well, so perhaps they too could be involved in destroying surfactant (Goldfischer et a1 1968).

M. RElD & B. MEYRICK is found in the alveolar wall; that is to say, it is intra-acinar. In the rat it starts in the pre-acinar region - that is, partially muscular arteries are commonly found with the terminal bronchiolus. ) In the adult human and in the rat the largest partially muscular artery is about 150 pm in external diameter; the largest nonmuscular artery is about 80 pm. A similar arrangement is seen on the venous side of the capillary bed but, as the response to hypoxia demonstrates, similarity of structure does not imply the same functional behaviour.
