Human stool is a heterogeneous mixture of non-digestible food residues, bacteria, cells exfoliated from the gastrointestinal mucosa and other secretory products. We have demonstrated that fresh human stools dispersed in a buffered saline solution can be fractionated over Percoll/BSA gradients to yield 9 discrete bands of cells in the density range of rho(More)
Human stools consist of a mixture of undigested food residues, colonic microflora, and cellular components shed from the walls of the gastrointestinal tract. The cellular components are made up mostly of terminally differentiated colonic epithelial cells. Using a combination of Percoll density gradient centrifugation and countercurrent centrifugal(More)
