#612 Serotonin in Blood: Assessment of its Origin by Concomitant Determination of β-Thromboglobulin (platelets) and Chromogranin A (enterochromaffin cells)
Introduction: Serotonin is produced in enterochromaffin (EC) cells, taken up and stored in platelets and released during platelet activation. Measurement of platelet-poor plasma serotonin is difficult, mainly due to platelet activation during blood sampling.

#801 Normal Gastrointestinal Neuroendocrine Cells Lack E-cadherin
Introduction: E-cadherin plays a crucial role in the adhesion between epithelial cells and thus epithelial integrity. Moreover, germ line mutations in the E-cadherin gene (CDH1) causing loss of E-cadherin function (adhesion) leads to hereditary gastric cancer of the diffuse type, according to Laurén. Even sporadic gastric carcinomas of the diffuse type often lose E-cadherin expression due to mutations. Lack of E-cadherin has been recorded at an early phase in such carcinomas.
