Intestinal epithelial cells absorb ingested neutral lipids, apparently as water-soluble micelles of bile salts, monoglycerides, and/or fatty acids (3, 7). Electron microscopy of intestinal cells fixed in osmium tetroxide reveals some of the absorbed lipid as electron-opaque droplets in the apical cytoplasm distal to the microvilli and subjacent terminal web… CONTINUE READING
