Citation: Nalle Pentinmikko et al., Notum produced by Paneth cells attenuates regeneration of aged intestinal epithelium.
The intestinal mucosal epithelium consists of four main cell types--absorptive enterocytes, goblet cells, Paneth cells and enteroendocrine cells--which undergo continuous cycles of renewal.

Glands of the large intestines of healthy individuals do not contain paneth cells. The muscularis mucosa, which is the last layer of the mucosa, is composed of two smooth muscle layers that are circular interiorly and longitudinal exteriorly.

Histopathological evaluation overall (Figure 4) revealed less acute inflammation and fewer architectural changes when compared to her prior biopsies but was suggestive of an evolving autoimmune enterocolopathy with villous blunting of the duodenum and absence of goblet and Paneth cells in the colon.
Paneth Cells. Paneth cells are epithelial cells of the small intestine that are located between and around IESCs and take part in shaping the crypt microenvironment and regulating microbial interactions within the crypt by secreting antimicrobial peptides [40].
Mutations in NOD2 and ATGL16L1 have been found to contribute to morphological alterations in Paneth cells in CD patients [90].
Toll-like receptors (TLR) belong to the family of PRRs and are present in macrophages of the lamina propria, dendritic cells, Paneth cells, and intestinal epithelial cells [4].
Paneth cells: history of discovery, structural and functional characteristics and the role in the maintenance of homeostasis in the small intestine.
We first wish to refer to a family of cationic anti-bacteria peptides known as "defensins": the alpha-defensins released by Paneth cells, and the beta-difensins, as coming from colonocytes.
For instance, NOD2-dependent responses to bacterial peptidoglycan fragments can promote Paneth cells to express antimicrobial cryptdin peptides.[sup][9] Intestinal symbiotic bacteria can also induce Paneth cells and intestinal mucosal epithelial cells to express regenerating islet-derived protein IIIa, which is a C-type lectin that binds to peptidoglycan to kill Gram-positive bacteria in the gut.[sup][10]
