Talk:Multinucleate

Other Reasons?[edit]

Some hepatocytes are multinucleated and cardiomyocytes are binucleated and this is normal. There seems to be no explanation regarding this and it isn't considered pathogenic. One possible reason is an increased demand for synthesis but I'm no histologist or cell biologist. 109.175.240.152 (talk) 23:42, 4 March 2013 (UTC)

How about skeletal muscle cells? They are multinucleate.

"... cells of the musculoskeletal and blood systems of mammals)." Already there, but there was a typo which may have made it unclear. Thanks for the suggestion, anyway! —Preceding unsigned comment added by Spitfire ch (talkcontribs) 23:33, 29 April 2009 (UTC)

Rename[edit]

Wouldn't it be better if the article was named multinucleated cell? --kupirijo (talk) 21:18, 23 November 2011 (UTC)

Merge[edit]

Wouldn't it be better if we merged this article with the article syncytium? --kupirijo (talk) 21:42, 23 November 2011 (UTC)

And plasmodium as well. --kupirijo (talk) 14:57, 22 December 2011 (UTC)

Actually, forget it. I did some reading and figured out the relation between syncytium and coenocyte --kupirijo (talk) 08:06, 23 December 2011 (UTC)

Terminology[edit]

Some people still insist on using the term "acellular" instead of "syncytial" or "plasmodial" (eg see here). Google scholar brings up more, even in past 5 years:

https://scholar.google.com/scholar?q=syncytial+plasmodial+acellular+-vaccine+-respiratory&btnG=&hl=en&as_sdt=0%2C44&as_ylo=2012

I'm at a loss as to what to write in the article about this, since I couldn't find any sources that explicitly discuss the problem. We should probably mention it at least, so that laymen know what's going on (see this for example). But it'd be great if someone could find a higher-level source (eg a cellbio/histo textbook) to quote. -- bornLoser (talk) 18:05, 26 January 2017 (UTC)
