Abstract

The developmental changes of rat distal colon during suckling and weaning periods were studied using electron microscopy. The basolateral membrane surface density of superficial enterocytes was estimated by the stereological method of vertical sections. It was shown that the membrane surface density increases during maturation of rat dital colon.

Keywords : basolateral membrane, rat colon, superficial enterocytes, surface density
