Newly raised anti-c-Kit antibody detects interstitial cells of Cajal in the gut of chicken embryos
The gut peristaltic movement, a wave-like propagation of a local contraction, is important for the transportation and digestion of ingested materials. Among three types of cells, the enteric nervous system (ENS), smooth muscle cells, and interstitial cells of Cajal (ICCs), the ICCs have been thought to act as a pacemaker, and therefore it is important to decipher the cellular functions of ICCs for the understanding of gut peristalsis. c-Kit, a tyrosine kinase receptor, has widely been used as adoi:10.1101/2022.05.26.493534 fatcat:upobtn5irbeshht5si7d2lbw4u
