New isolation technique to study apoptosis in human intestinal epithelial cells.

Abstract

Intestinal epithelial cells derive from stem cells at the base of the crypt and migrate along the crypt-lumen axis. Their life is terminated as they reach the luminal surface where they detach and are shed. Intestinal epithelial cells show evidence of apoptosis in the region of shedding, and cell death is thought to resemble a form of apoptosis called… (More)
