Culture conditions and treatments affect Caco-2 characteristics and particle uptake.
Small intestinal microparticle uptake via a paracellular route is relevant to oral drug delivery and environmental pollution. In vitro investigation uses latex microparticle passage across a confluent Caco-2 cell epithelium. This paper examines the influence of culture conditions on transepithelial resistance (TER); cell dimensions from confocal microscopy; and number of particles below the epithelium. Variables investigated include level of initial TER; multiple TER measurements; involvement...Expand abstract
