But the researchers found that when Paneth cells are removed and replaced with two small molecules involved in cell signalling, these molecules could direct the stem cells to develop into pure populations of proliferating stem cells.
The alphadefensin family consists of 6 members, 4 of which are found in the primary granules of neutrophils (accounting for 30% of total granule protein), and 2 in the Paneth cells of the crypts of the small intestine.
A comparison of the structure of granular cell T type in the intestinal epithelium of the camel with Paneth cells of the rabbit.
Normal mice have Paneth cells with apical secretory granules by postnatal day seven (P7) and lysomzyme by P 10, but a delay in maturation is seen in germfree mice in whom lysozyme becomes detectable only by P148.
In the small intestine, so-called Paneth cells normally secrete antimicrobial compounds (SN: 8/26/00, p.
by Paneth cells in the small intestine (8), by mucus-producing cells in the intestine, and in the gall bladder, biliary tract, kidney, lung, liver, and breast (9,10).
In addition, the Paneth cells (secretory cells) in the spiked-fed group were highly activated and contained a large number of secretory granules.
Methyl mercury in primates produces histologic abnormality of one intestinal cell line: Paneth cells are enlarged and packed with secretory granules (21), also specifically reported in autistic children (5).
The dilated cystic glands have an abundance of mature mucus-secreting cells, and some neuroendocrine and Paneth cells.
Indeed, enteroendocrine cells have been shown to develop from the same pluripotent stem cells as the other three cell lineages of the intestinal epithelium: absorptive enterocytes, goblet cells, and Paneth cells.
Paneth cells are situated in the base of the crypts of Liberkuhn.
