The localization of secretory immunoglobulin A (IgA) in Paneth cells was immunohistochemically studied in germ-free (Gf) and ex-Gf rats that had been injected with feces obtained from specific-pathogen-free (SPF) rats. In Gf as well as SPF rats, the secretory granules of Paneth cells and the brush borders of crypt cells exhibited IgA immunoreactivity. At 12… CONTINUE READING
