Synthesis and Secretion of Glycoproteins by Isolated Rat Small Intestinal Epithelial Cells
- 140 Downloads
Mucins are synthesised by the goblet cells of the small intestinal mucosa and secreted into the lumen. Subcellular fractions from rat small intestinal mucosa incorporate glucosamine into brush border glycoproteins and mucins, which can also be labelled in vivo (Forstner, 1970). Human small intestinal mucosa biopsy samples have been cultured and shown to produce mucins (Browning and Trier, 1969).
