Rat liver fatty-acid-binding protein (L-FABP) was originally isolated from the liver parenchymal cells and later found also in the intestinal absorptive cells. By light- and electron-microscopic immunocytochemistry we examined the distribution of L-FABP in the entire digestive system of the rat and revealed two other cell types, i.e. the endocrine D cell and the brush cell, to be specifically immunoreactive for L-FABP. The immunoreactive D cells, identified by the simultaneous immunoreactivity… CONTINUE READING
