Epithelial cells of the small intestine, like those of other internal organs, contain intermediate-sized filaments immunologically related to epidermal prekeratin which are especially concentrated in the cell apex. Brush-order fractions were isolated from rat small intestine, and apical tonofilaments attached to desmosomal plaques and terminal web residues… CONTINUE READING
