Laser-induced autofluorescence has been used to discriminate normal from adenomatous colonic mucosa. However, few studies to date have studied the origin of colonic autofluorescence. Using confocal microscopy (excitation wavelength 488 nm), we have shown that autofluorescence at this wavelength is present predominantly in the lamina propria of normal mucosa(More)
We isolated highly enriched fractions of villous and crypt cells from guinea pig intestine to determine whether this preparation provided a suitable model for comparing the transport of cobalamin and conjugated bile salts by these cell populations. The uptake of [57Co] cyanocobalamin by ileal villous cells was 30-fold greater when incubated with cobalamin(More)
