The vitamin D-dependent calcium-binding protein (CaBP) was studied in relation to the age of the cell, in isolated epithelial cell populations removed from rat duodenum. Alkaline phosphatase and thymidine kinase activities were used as markers to characterize differentiated villus cells and undifferentiated (mitotically active) crypt cells, respectively. CaBP distribution along the length of the villus, as established by radioimmunoassay, appears as a gradient increasing from the crypt to the… CONTINUE READING
