The slides were examined by consultant histopathologist and presence or absence of histological features consistent with CD, including, villous architecture, villous height: crypt length ratio, crypt hyperplasia, surface enterocytes, increased intraepithelial lymphocytes (IEL) and other histological findings like parasites, granuloma, dysplasia or evidence of malignancy were noted.
sup][24],[25],[26],[27],[28] Iron in the diet is absorbed through divalent metal transporter 1 (DMT1),[sup][29] a multi-transmembrane protein, or heme carrier protein 1[sup][29] on duodenal and jejunal enterocytes.
The basic system of iron metabolism involves the dietary iron absorption by the duodenal enterocytes (Ganz et al.
The epithelial cell layers of the anterior intestine were consisted mainly of columnar enterocytes, sac-shaped goblet and a few APUD cells (Figs.
Lipid-based formulations (LBFs) can be digested by lipases and bile salts to produce mixed micelles that are then absorbed through the enterocytes, or surfactant systems can be utilized to deliver self-microemulsifying drug delivery system (SMEDDS) to improve absorption (see Figure 2).
In addition to its expression in the proximal renal tubule, SGLT-1 is abundant in intestinal mucosa enterocytes, where it facilitates the absorption of dietary glucose.
The intestine did not show significant lesions macroscopically; microscopically, the enterocytes at the luminal surface of the intestine had sloughed into the lumen as a result of freeze-thaw artifact.
Metformin also increases glucose uptake and utilization in the intestine, and causes increased lactic acid production in enterocytes (2).
Covering the surfaces of the villi are enterocytes, goblet cells and a few enteroendocrine cells.
Colibacillosis begins when there is binding of the bacteria to specific receptors of enterocytes through the fimbrial adhesins.
