Paneth cells

Paneth cells are specialized secretory epithelial cells located at the bases of intestinal crypts (crypts of LieberkŸhn) (Porter et al, 2002). These cells are sometimes being referred to as Davidoff's cells (Davidov's cells).

Paneth cells, together with enterocytes, enteroendocrine cells, and goblet cells make up the four principal cell types of the mouse small intestinal epithelium (Wright, 2000. These four cell types are thought to be derived from one multipotent stem cell. Yang et al (2001) have reported that knock-out mice lacking Math1, a basic helix-loop-helix (bHLH) transcription factor expressed in the gut, leads to depletion of goblet cells, enteroendocrine cells, and Paneth cells without affecting enterocytes. Secretory cells (goblet cells, enteroendocrine cells, and Paneth cells) thus may arise from a common progenitor that expresses Math1, whereas absorptive cells (enterocytes) arise from a progenitor that is Math1-independent.

Paneth cells release a variety of antimicrobial substances (lysozyme, intestinal phospholipase A2, defensins, cryptdins) from cytoplasmic granules in response to a range of stimuli and affect luminal microbial ecology. These cells, therefore, play an important role in intestinal defense mechanisms against micro-organisms (Ouellette, 1999; Keshav et al, 2006). Stappenbeck et al (2002) have reported studies with transgenic mice lacking Paneth cells. They have suggested that microbes colonizing a mucosal surface participate in regulating intestinal angiogenesis during postnatal development via Paneth cells.

Paneth cells have been shown to possess the capacity to express the proteins listed below. Please note the following general observations, which practically apply to all cell types: expression may be influenced by tissue localization, may occur only in discrete subpopulations of cells, may vary between established cell lines, primary cells, embryonic cells, mature cells, fully differentiated cells, activated cells, non-activated cells or growth conditions (confluent vs. sparse cultures), may be influenced by various disease states (including cancer environment), and may differ between species.
Note also: expression profile information lists entities only for which there is an entry in COPE or one of its subdictionaries.

The meaning of and „„ is as follows: factor/protein is expressed; „„ receptor (or, in some instances, binding sites) for this factor/protein is expressed. For further explanations concerning format, "hidden" information, and/or ambiguities see my remarks in the entry cell types.
