A comparison of membrane enzymes of human and pig oesophagus; the pig oesophagus is a good model for studies of the gullet in man


The distribution and relative catalytic activities of five plasma membrane enzymes (alkaline phosphatase, dipeptidyl peptidase IV, γ-glutamyl transpeptidase, microsomal alanyl aminopeptidase and glutamyl aminopeptidase) were examined in human and pig oesophagus. In both species, alkaline phosphatase activity occurred in basal and suprabasal cells of the… (More)
