Title: CRIP1A Immunoreactivity in Gastrointestinal Tract
Description: Immunoreactivity for Cannabinoid Receptor Interacting Protein 1a (CRIP1a) is confirmed in cells of the gastrointestinal tract. That makes me smile. Apparently, that makes the cells smile too. :-)

Cells were isolated from the gastrointestinal trace of an adult mouse using an ileal longitudinal muscle/myenteric plexus preparation. The cells were fixed and stained with an anti- Cannabinoid Receptor Interacting Protein (CRIP1a) antibody and visualized with an anti-rabbit Alexa 488 antibody (green). Nuclear visualization was accomplished with a Hoechst 33342 stain (blue) The largest cell is approximately 50 um wide.

This is the first picture to confirm the presence of Cannabinoid Receptor Interacting Protein 1a (CRIP1a) in gastrointestinal cells. CRIP1a has previously been characterized in brain, eye and transfected cell culture systems.

Visualization was performed on an Olympus Fluoview Confocal Microscope and software (v5.0).
