An in vivo model of human small intestine using pluripotent stem cells.
Cincinnati, United States. In Nat Med, 2014
In vivo transplantation resulted in marked expansion and maturation of the epithelium and mesenchyme, as demonstrated by differentiated intestinal cell lineages (enterocytes, goblet cells, Paneth cells, tuft cells and enteroendocrine cells), presence of functional brush-border enzymes (lactase, sucrase-isomaltase and dipeptidyl peptidase 4) and visible subepithelial and smooth muscle layers when compared with HIOs in vitro.
Homozygosity mapping of the gene for alkaptonuria to chromosome 3q2.
Boston, United States. In Nat Genet, 1993
Coinheritance of either neonatal severe hyperparathyroidism or sucrase-isomaltase deficiency and alkaptonuria provided a candidate location for the mutated genes on chromosome 3. Homozygosity mapping with polymorphic loci identified a 16 centiMorgan region on chromosome 3q2 that contains the alkaptonuria gene.
