Ano1 is a selective marker of interstitial cells of Cajal in the human and mouse gastrointestinal tract.
Populations of interstitial cells of Cajal (ICC) are altered in several gastrointestinal neuromuscular disorders. ICC are identified typically by ultrastructure and expression of Kit (CD117), aExpand
