The brush border (BB) of the enterocyte is a well-studied example of the actin-based cytoskeleton. We describe here a cell culture model that expresses a faithful representation of the in vivo structure. Two clones (C2BBe 1 and 2) isolated from the cell line Caco-2 (derived from a human colonic adenocarcinoma) formed a polarized monolayer with an apical BB… CONTINUE READING
