Dipeptidyl peptidase IV (DPPIV) is a serine exoproteinase expressed at high levels in epithelial cells of kidney, liver and small intestine. Recently Watanabe, Kohima & Fujimoto [(1987) Experientia 43, 400-401] and Gossrau et al. [(1990) Histochem. J. 22, 172-173] reported that Fischer 344 rats are deficient in this enzyme. We have examined DPPIV expression(More)
The mammalian adult small intestinal epithelium is a rapidly self-renewing tissue that is maintained by a pool of cycling stem cells intermingled with Paneth cells at the base of crypts. These crypt base stem cells exclusively express Lgr5 and require Wnt3 or, in its absence, Wnt2b. However, the Frizzled (Fzd) receptor that transmits these Wnt signals is(More)
An hepatocyte cell-adhesion molecule (cell-CAM105) was recently shown to be identical with the liver plasma-membrane ecto-ATPase. This protein has structural features of the immunoglobulin superfamily and is homologous with carcinoembryonic antigen proteins. We have cloned a cDNA encoding a new form of the cell-CAM105 which is a variant of the previously(More)
The glycoprotein cell-CAM 105 is a member of the carcinoembryonic-antigen-(CEA)-gene family, involved in cell-cell adhesion of rat hepatocytes and expressed on the cell surface as a long (L) and a short (S) isoform with slightly differing molecular masses and isoelectric points. The cDNA of the L-isoform has been isolated and sequenced, as confirmed by the(More)
