Serine protease immunohistochemistry and lectin histochemistry in the small intestine of weaned and unweaned pigs

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review

The distribution of goblet cells containing serine protease and of those binding the lectin Ulex europaeus agglutinin-1 (UEA-1) in the pig small intestine is altered during the period after weaning. Goblet cells exhibiting binding of other lectins were not altered. These alterations and other changes in goblet cells may reflect the effects of a hypersensitivity response to dietary antigen.
