The epithelia of the respiratory and gastrointestinal tract and their appendages contain a distinct population of disseminated epithelial cells called brush cells or caveolated cells. On the basis of their structure, it was suggested that brush cells might serve as chemo- or volume receptors that play a role in certain aspects of gastrointestinal and bronchopulmonary secretion or motility. In the present study we provide first clues to a possible function of this widespread epithelial cell type… CONTINUE READING
