The purpose of this study was to construct a human M cell model to evaluate the transport of polystyrene and albumin microparticles via this model. The integrity of the M cell model was evaluated by determining the transepithelial electrical resistance (TEER), and the alkaline phosphate activity was determined as an indicator of the presence of M-cell-like cells in the coculture. Both Fluoresbrite microparticles and albumin microparticles were transported by both Caco-2 monoculture and M cell… CONTINUE READING
