BACKGROUND Very few studies have been reported on the expression of human pancreatic genes during fetal development. We have shown very low lipase immunoreactivity compared with elevated trypsinogen immunoreactivity in a previous immunohistological study of human fetal pancreas during development. METHODS The expression of these two selectively expressed genes of the exocrine pancreas, trypsinogen and lipase were investigated. The developmental profiles of the corresponding mRNA's were… CONTINUE READING
