Division of Gastroenterology, Department of Medicine, Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center, Long Beach 90822, USA
Am J Physiol 276:G965-74. 1999..The results of this study indicate that ethanol at low noncytotoxic doses causes a functional and structural opening of the Caco-2 intestinal epithelial TJ barrier by activating MLCK...
- Mechanism of extracellular calcium regulation of intestinal epithelial tight junction permeability: role of cytoskeletal involvementT Y Ma
Division of Gastroenterology, Department of Medicine, DVA Medical Center, Long Beach, California 90822, USA
Microsc Res Tech 51:156-68. 2000..The removal of extracellular Ca(++) from the incubation medium causes activation of Caco-2 MLCK, which in turn leads to an increase in intestinal monolayer TJ permeability...
