Changes in structural and functional properties of rat intestinal brush border membrane during starvation.

Abstract

Changes in surface area of microvilli, fluidity of brush border membrane and transport of L-amino acids through intestinal epithelial cells were studied in wellfed and starved (2,4 and 6 days) rats. The surface area of microvilli per unit area of intestinal epithelial cells increased during starvation. Studies with fluoroprobes - pyrene, 1… (More)
