Abstract

The polypeptide hormone GIP has been localized ultrastructurally by using specific, monoclonal GIP antibodies and an immunogold technique on aldehyde-osmium fixed specimens of dog duodenal mucosa. A single type of cell showing round, homogeneous, fairly osmiophilic granules with closely applied membrane and a mean size of 188 nm±34 SD has been identified as the GIP cell.
