Anti-c-kit protein immunoreactive cells corresponding to the interstitial cells of Cajal in the guinea-pig small intestine.

Interstitial cells of Cajal (ICC) of the guinea-pig small intestine were studied with whole-mount preparations by using the zinc iodide-osmic acid method (ZIO) and immunohistochemistry for vimentin and c-kit receptor tyrosine kinase, and by electron microscopy. The myenteric ICC visualized with ZIO staining are immunopositive to both anti-c-kit antibody (ACK-2) and anti-vimentin antibody (V9), and constitute an independent cellular network from the myenteric plexus. Those cells are characterized by many mitochondria, abundant intermediate filaments, and surface cell membranes not covered with a basal lamina. They are connected with each other by gap junctions at tips of the cytoplasmic processes. It is concluded that the myenteric ICC of the guinea-pig intestine are fibroblast-like cells and that they correspond to the c-kit expressing cells regarded as the intestinal pacemaker.[1]
