Avascular segments of fetal rat intestine transplanted to the subcutaneous tissues of host syngeneic rats will become vascularized and grow. This study more fully characterizes this tissue, which we call "neogut," and compares it to normal rat small intestine. Anatomy was studied with light microscopy and scanning and transmission electron microscopy; transport and electrophysiologic parameters were measured in full-thickness pieces of tissue mounted in Ussing chambers; motility patterns… CONTINUE READING
