Duodenal endocrine cell types in four age groups of NMRI mice (1, 3, 12 and 24 months old) were identified by immunocytochemistry and quantified by computerized image analysis. Whereas the number of secretin-immunoreactive cells was significantly increased in the 24-month-old group, the number of GIP-immunoreactive cells was reduced in 12-month-old compared with 3-month-old mice. The number of somatostatin-immunoreactive cells was fewer in both the 12- and 24-month-olds vis-à-vis the 3-month… CONTINUE READING
