The distribution of intestinal membranous (M) cells has been studied within the follicle-associated epithelium of rabbit Peyer's patches and appendix. Vimentin expression has been assessed as a primary criterion to identify rabbit M cells in tissue sections and in whole tissue preparations. This criterion has been compared to the use of the absence of alkaline phosphatase which, due to its heterogeneous distribution within the enterocyte population, is less reliable than vimentin expression as… CONTINUE READING
