This paper aimed at investigating the alterations in interstitial cells of Cajal (ICCs) in the murine small intestine from 0-day to 56-day post-partum (P0-P56) by immunohistochemistry. The Kit+ ICCs, which were situated around myenteric nerve plexus (ICC-MY) formed a loose cellular network at P0 which changed into an intact one before P32. The density of(More)
This paper aimed at investigating the alterations in interstitial cells of Cajal (ICC) in the proximal, middle and distal colon of mice from 0-day to 56-day post-partum (P0-P56) by immunohistochemistry. The Kit(+) ICC, which situated around myenteric nerve plexus (ICC-MY) were prominent at birth, meanwhile those cells within the smooth muscle layers(More)
The mammalian gastrointestinal (GI) tract undergoes rapid development during early postnatal life in order to transition from a milk to solid diet. Interstitial cells of Cajal (ICC) are the pacemaker cells that coordinate smooth muscle contractility within the GI tract, and hence we hypothesized that ICC networks undergo significant developmental changes(More)
