The thickness of the pre-epithelial mucus layer has been measured in different gut segments of rats kept under normal (ad libitum) feeding conditions, and after 48 h of fasting, using cryostat sections and celloidin stabilization from samples containing luminal contents. The mucus layer of the stomach, duodenum, jejunum, ileum, caecum, proximal colon, colon transversum, distal colon and rectum was studied in five groups of male rats (10, 40, 70 and 150 days of age, and older). Under ad libitum… CONTINUE READING
