Immunofluorescent localization of gastrin in rabbit antropyloric mucosa to argyrophil cells exhibiting formaldehyde-ozone-induced fluorescence

Abstract

The cellular localization of gastrin in the rabbit pyloric antrum was established by immunofluorescence. The gastrin cell was argyrophil (Grimelius technique) and identical with a previously described cell type that emits fluorescence upon combined formaldehydeozone treatment, a feature that has been interpreted as indicating storage of peptides with NH2-terminal tryptophan. The identity of the peptides and its relation to gastrin is unknown.
