BACKGROUND Previous studies have shown that a combination of both the extracellular matrix and secretagogues plays critical roles in the maintenance of well-differentiated pancreatic acinar cells in culture. In the present study, we have shown that, upon proper stimulation, acinar cells change their growth pattern and morphologic appearance to a duct like phenotype. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN Both rat and guinea pig acinar cells were cultured on or embedded into the Matrigel basement membrane, in… CONTINUE READING
