Distributions of enteroendocrine cells (EEC), defined by the hormones they contain within the human fundus and corpus are mapped onto the human stomach scaffold.
Study Purpose: The goal of this work is to map cell density data to an annotated generic human stomach scaffold.
Data Collection: The generic human stomach scaffold is created based on the general description and average dimensions of human stomachs. Cell density distribution data is collected by John Furness et al from the mucosal lining of the fundus and corpus regions of human stomachs. The data is derived from the original dataset.
Primary Conclusion: None stated
Experimental Design: Not applicable.
Subjects & Samples: This study used stomach tissue removed from 1 male adult and 3 female adult patients undergoing gastric sleeve surgery for obesity; stomach samples were derived from the fundus and antrum regions of the stomach.
Primary vs derivative data: The primary folder contains the mapping tool provenance data file needed to produce the scaffold map. The mapping tool will be accessible from the release download page on the SPARC Portal. The derivative folder contains webGL files which are used to generate a visualization of the scaffold map on the web portal.
