Abstract [en]

The small intestine mucosa is known to be able to adapt itself to several kinds of both physiological and pathological conditions. The adaptive patterns of the structure of the enterocytes, particularly their apical surface (brush border), were studied in three models: (1) in rats, subjected to antrectomy or antral exclusion, combined with gastroduodenostomy and gastrojejunostomy; (2) in rats with alloxan dia­betes; (3) in children with coeliac disease; a) in its active phase; b) after long-term treatment with gluten-free diets; c) after long-term challenge with dietary gluten following treatment; d) after short-term elimination of dietary gluten. Gut mucosa from fasting or fed, normal or sham-operated rats, fasting cats, and short-statured children with no signs of gastrointestinal disease served as controls. - The specimens were prepared for light microscopy (LM), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). Quantitation of structural variables was achieved by means of LM and TEM morphometrical procedures.

Differentiation of the rat enterocytes from the base to the crest of the villi was structurally reflected by doubling of their apical cell area, an increase in cell height, and a decrease of both nuclear and mitochondrial volume densities. In mature normal rat enterocytes, high-power SEM showed regularly arranged, nude microvilli in thir apical surfaces, whereas in cat and man the apical surfaces were covered by a thick glycocalyx. - Fasting for 24 hours decreased the total length of the rat small intestine and the height of the enterocytes. Antrectomy and antral exclusion with gastrojejunostomy produced an increase of the apical surfaces of the enterocytes of the seif-emptying duodenal blind loop, whereas no changes occurred after antrectomy with gastroduodeno­stomy. In the jejunum, the apical surface area was reduced both after antrectomy and antral exclusion. In the diabetic rats a slight decrease of the apical surface area, together with an elongation of both the vil­li and the crypts, was observed in the jejunum, whereas no structural changes occurred in the duodenal mucosa.

Both in active coeliac disease and after long-term challenge with dietary gluten, SEM analyses showed uniformly destructed villi. The api­cal surfaces of the enterocytes were frequently convex and irregular in size and delineation (the surface of the normal enterocytes was polygo­nal and flat). Ultrastructurally, the apical surfaces were severely damaged with a distortion of the glycocalyx and with marked irregularity of the microvilli. - After gluten elimination, the surface ultrastructu­re of the enterocytes in the coeliac gut mucosa generally showed a rapid, clear-cut restoration despite a remaining severe atrophy of the villi. Successful dietary treatment (after about one year of gluten-free diet) restored the small intestine mucosa to normal as assessed both by LM and low-power SEM. In contrast, high-power SEM often disclosed per­sisting lesions of the enterocytes. Another provocation with gluten for up to 9 days in clinically healed coeliac mucosa did not significantly alter the surface ultrastructure of the enterocytes.
