Neutral and acidic goblet cell concentrations in the small intestine of the unweaned pig

Neutral and acidic goblet cell concentrations in the small intestine of the unweaned pig

Biology of the Neonate 57(3-4): 194-199

Concentrations of Alcian blue (AB+) and periodic acid-Schiff (PAS+) staining goblet cells on small intestinal villi and in intestinal glands of unweaned pigs were determined. Samples from the distal duodenum, mid jejunum, and distal jejunum were taken from 7 pigs from each of 4 litters at ages 9, 18, 24, 27, 30, 33 and 36 days. The only concentration differences between litters were observed in the mid-jejunal villi AB+ staining goblet cells (p = 0.03) so that litter origin of piglets was basically nonexistent. Concentrations of goblet cells increased with age on the villous AB+ and PAS+ cells in the duodenum and in the mid jejunum (p less than 0.03). No other differences in goblet cell concentrations were observed.
