ABSTRACT
This study focused on detection of monocarboxylate transporter 1 (MCT1) in mucosal tissues from the four compartments of stomach in calves and sheep on both protein and mRNA levels using Western blotting and reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR), respectively. MCT1 was more expressed in the forestomach (rumen, reticulum, omasum) than in true stomach (abomasum) of both animals, and it was considerably more abundant in abomasum of adult sheep than of calves. The results suggest that MCT1 can be regulated by dietary changes and its physiological function is postulated to influence the transport of SCFA and their metabolites in ruminant stomach.
