Figure 4

IFABP expression in human small intestine. Indirect immunofluorescence analysis using anti-IFABP polyclonal antibodies (Alexa 488, green) and nuclei stained with DAPI (blue). Representative staining in duodenal sections of non-CD control ((a) and (b)) and CD patient at diagnosis (c) (magnification 20x). Confocal fluorescence microscopy using anti-IFABP polyclonal antibodies (Alexa 488, green) and nuclei stained with propidium iodide (red). Representative staining in duodenal sections of non-CD control ((d) and (e)) and CD patient at diagnosis (f) (magnification 63x + 1.7 zoom). Healthy tissue ((a), (b), (d), and (e)) shows IFABP expression in the villi enterocytes. Severe enteropathy ((c) and (f)) shows IFABP expression in the epithelium as well as the crypts.
