High impact information on SI

  • Guinea pig serum raised to purified rabbit SI complex inhibited bacterial adherence to microvilli [1].
  • The activity of jejunal sucrase-isomaltase (SI) was higher (P < 0.05) 48 h after IO feeding in all the IO fed embryos, whereas at day of hatch and at d 3 the CHO+HMB IO group had the highest maltase activity (P < 0.05), which was approximately 50% greater than control embryos [2].
  • CdxA protein was shown to bind to the promoter region of SI in the chick indicating that cdxA is similar to the mammalian cdx2 [3].
  • 6. The addition of HMC to the diet markedly affected the morphology of the intestinal wall and significantly increased the number of goblet cells per 100 villus cells and the sucrase isomaltase activity was increased significantly [4].
  • The intestinal sucrase-isomaltase (SI) complex is a glycoprotein of the small intestine brush border membrane that plays an important role in the final degradation of carbohydrate [5].
