Incorporation of radioactive proline and fucose in gastric mucosal biopsies. Correlation with histological findings.

Human gastric mucosal biopsies incorporate in vitro radioactive proline and fucose into macromolecular glycoproteins (mucin). Differences were found between the incorporation pattern of antral and fundic mucosae according to their pathology, confirmed by histology. Antral mucosae with abnormal histology showed a significantly higher incorporation of proline… CONTINUE READING
