Biogenesis of the apical endosome-lysosome complex during differentiation of absorptive epithelial cells in rat ileum.

Abstract

Absorptive cells of the neonatal rat ileum have an elaborate apical endocytic complex consisting of tubular and vesicular endosomes, multivesicular bodies (MVB), and a giant lysosomal vacuole. This system develops rapidly over the last 3 days (20-22) of gestation. We followed the assembly of this complex by ultrastructural analysis and immunocytochemistry… (More)
