Abstract
ABSTRACT
The article presents information on abstracts related to human abdomen. An abstract presents information on the shedding of human intestinal epithelial cells (ECs) results in gaps in the epithelial monolayer. ECs are known to shed from the surface of the human intestine. ECs that have become detached are known to undergo apoptosis (anoikis), however the mechanism of cell detachment is obscure. Previous studies of living mice using confocal microscopy have demonstrated the presence of gaps associated with EC shedding. These gaps are filled with a non-cellular material that maintains the EC barrier.
