The results of immunoblot analysis performed with a specific monoclonal antibody showed that the intestinal mucosa, pancreas and liver are privileged tissues for the expression of annexin IV. Immunofluorescence labelling of thin frozen sections of these tissues showed a strong concentration of annexin IV along the basolateral domain of the plasma membrane of intestinal absorbing cells, hepatocytes and pancreatic acinar cells, whereas in intestinal mucous secreting cells and centro acinar pancreatic cells, annexin IV was found to be present throughout the cytoplasm.
