ABSTRACT Com o objetivo de estudar a morfologia e determinar a localização da enzima fosfatase ácida na região anterior do intestino delgado, do nascimento ao fechamento intestinal, foram coletadas amostras de 15 bezerros machos em três idades: ao nascer sem que houvesse a ingestão de colostro; três horas após a ingestão da primeira refeição de colostro e aos três dias de idade. Observou-se a presença de células vacuoladas do duodeno ao jejuno médio no recém-nascido, preenchidas por material absorvido após a ingestão de colostro. Foram verificadas mudanças nas características morfológicas aos três dias de idade, com o início da detecção de reação da fosfatase ácida em lisossomos, indicando ação enzimática sobre o material absorvido. A morfologia aos três dias de idade pode representar o diferente estádio de maturação das células epiteliais do intestino delgado de bezerros, indicando que o processo depende das características da primeira geração de células desta região do intestino.

    ABSTRACT: The present study investigated enterocyte ultrastructure using transmission electron microscopy during IgG uptake in postnatal goat kids fed with colostrum. Six animals received 5% of body weight of goat colostrum at 0, 7 and 14 h of life and were randomly slaughtered at 18, 36 and 96 h (n = 2) for the collection of duodenum, jejunum and ileum. Two other animals were sampled immediately after birth without colostrum ingestion constituting a 0 h group. The enteric tissues were analyzed for ultrastructure enterocyte characteristics, immunocytochemistry labeling of immunoglobulin G (IgG), and microvillus height. In the duodenum, a large number of cytoplasmic organelles were observed. A dense network of tubular structures, the apical canalicular system (ACS), was observed only in the jejunum. At 0 h, large vacuoles without electron-dense material were present in the cytoplasm of the enterocytes in this segment. At 18 h, after the animals ingested three meals of colostrum, the vacuoles showed different sizes and were filled with electron-dense material. Labeled IgG were observed in the vacuoles containing colostrum and in the apical cytoplasm. At 36 h, the ACS was still present as well as large vacuoles in the basal cytoplasm of the enterocytes and smaller vacuoles in the apical region. At 96 h, the ACS and vacuoles with electron-dense material were no longer present. In the ileum, the cytoplasm of enterocytes showed a reduced presence of organelles and, at 0 and 18 h, small vesicles were observed in the cytoplasm; however, they did not constitute a network of tubules. The ileum showed the lowest microvilli height (P < 0.05), suggesting lower surface area to absorption compared to duodenum and jejunum. The jejunum segment was responsible for the initial acquisition of passive immunity and in the duodenum and ileum, a reduced capacity of IgG uptake was observed. On the fourth day of life, the enterocytes were no longer able to absorb macromolecules, indicating the end of the ability to uptake immunoglobulins.

    ABSTRACT: Enzyme activity was evaluated in the intestine of juvenile pacu, Piaractus mesopotamicus, fed diets containing 0, 10 or 20 % of lyophilized bovine colostrum (LBC) inclusion for either 30 or 60 days. The enzymes intestinal acid and alkaline phosphatase (ACP and ALP, respectively), nonspecific esterase (NSE), lipase (LIP), dipeptidyl aminopeptidase IV (DAP IV) and leucine aminopeptidase (LAP) were studied using histochemistry in four intestinal segments (S1, S2, S3 and rectum). Moderate activity of the DAP IV was detected in the three last intestinal segments, but no differences among the treatments were detected. Enzymes LAP, NSE and LIP were weakly stained in all intestinal segments and the inclusion of 10 or 20 % of LBC in the diet commanded a moderate reaction to NSE in the S3 segment at day 60. ACP activity was detected only in the brush border of the S1 segment of fish fed 0 % LBC for either 30 or 60 days. The activity of ALP was very strong in the first intestinal segment, but a weak reaction was seen in the last segments. The inclusion of 20 % of LBC changed the pattern of staining to the ALP, eliciting moderate staining in S2 at day 30 and S1 at day 60. The consumption of diets containing LBC by juvenile pacu did not have significant implications in intestinal enzymatic activity, which still was not fully stimulated.
