The mucosa is lined by simple columnar epithelial cells with microvillous border and occasional mucus cells.
Scolex attachment causes considerable disruption to the intestine, including: (i) destruction of the desmosomal junctions; (ii) loss of the gut microvillous border; (iii) separation and loss of enterocytes; (iv) release of host-cell debris into the gut lumen; and (v) infiltration of leukocytes into the infected area.

Electron microscopy: diffuse effacement of podocyte foot processes existed with microvillous transformation.
Another intriguing feature of MMTV-PPAR[delta] mice is the association between the onset of neoplasia and the upregula tion of Plac1 [31], a microvillous membrane protein expressed primarily in trophoblasts, but not in most somatic tissues [42] (Figure 1).
It has been reported that intranasal instillation of ATP enhances the expression of NPY in olfactory epithelium sustentacular and microvillous cells via P2 purinergic receptors and NPY stimulates the proliferation of neuronal progenitor cells through Y1 receptor-mediated ERK1/2 activation [49, 50].
Suggestion about the fact that a monogenean tegument is microvillous and has an absorptive potential provide evidences ofa close phylogenetic relationship between Monogenea and Cestoda, moreover, adds support to [27] argument for a close affinity between ancestral monogeneans and ancestral cestodes [22].
E: the apical surface of urothelium formed of umbrella cells with well-defined borders and scattered microvillous cells (magnified picture in the upper right corner).
Particularly aminoacids which are precursor for protein synthesis from the maternal circulation into the placenta in the microvillous membrane and basement membrane.
The enzymes that bound to the brush border of microvillous membrane including alkaline phosphatase (ALP) leucineaminopeptidase (LAP) -glutamyltransferase (-GT) are collectively called renal brush boarder membrane enzyme (RBBME).
The receptor is then recycled to the surface membrane in the microvillous border and the ligand is taken in.
