Characterization of the human colon carcinoma cell line (Caco-2) as a model system for intestinal epithelial permeability.

Abstract

Caco-2 cells develop morphologic characteristics of normal enterocytes when grown on plastic dishes or nitrocellulose filters. The purpose of this study was to determine whether Caco-2 cells undergo similar differentiation when grown on Transwell polycarbonate membranes, and to study the suitability of Caco-2 monolayers as an intestinal epithelial transport… (More)
