Brush cells are specialised epithelial cells scattered throughout the simple epithelia of the respiratory and alimentary tracts. These cells have been suggested to serve a still unknown receptive function and use nitric oxide as a gaseous messenger molecule. At the light microscope level, brush cells can be identified by antibodies against the actin filament crosslinking proteins villin and fimbrin that not only stain the apical tuft of microvilli and their rootlets, but also label projections… CONTINUE READING
