There is usually a large number of them in the plasm of the plant-cells.
We cannot accept the skeletal formation as a fundamental structure of the plasm.
As a fact, the number and variety of kinds of plasm are immense.
The plasm loses more and more the power to replace by regeneration the losses it sustains by the vital functions.
When you were little more than a mass of plasm inside your mother, I put a medicine in her blood that I had discovered.
Totally different from the three preceding theories of the finer structure of the plasm is the granular theory of Altmann .
But this difference is easily explained by their difference in consistency, the crystal being solid and the plasm semi-fluid.
The description of this orange-red globule of plasm (protomyxa aurantiaca) appeared first in my Monograph on the Monera.
The cell is then simply the living particle of plasm, and its two stages of development must be described by other names.
It has to take its plasm in its food from other organisms—plant-eaters directly, and animal-eaters indirectly.
1712, "form, shape" (earlier plasm), from Late Latin plasma, from Greek plasma "something molded or created," hence "image, figure; counterfeit, forgery; formed style, affectation," from plassein "to mold," originally "to spread thin," from PIE *plath-yein, from root *pele- (2) "flat, to spread" (see plane (n.1)). Sense of "liquid part of blood" is from 1845; that of "ionized gas" is 1928.
Variant of plasmo-.
Material forming cells or tissue: cytoplasm.
plasma plas·ma (plāz'mə) or plasm (plāz'əm)
The clear, yellowish fluid portion of blood, lymph, or intramuscular fluid in which cells are suspended.
Cell-free, sterilized blood plasma, used in transfusions.
Protoplasm or cytoplasm.
Note: Plasmas are usually associated with very high temperatures — most of the sun is a plasma, for example.
