For example, previous research, including that by Burrin and Stoll, has shown that GLP-2 boosts growth and proliferation of intestinal mucosal cells in piglets and in adult humans.
We have generated preliminary data demonstrating that stimulated intestinal epithelial cells release proteolytic activity predominantly on the basolateral side, suggesting that epithelium-derived proteases could then modify mucosal physiology and participate to the dialogue between epithelium and other mucosal cells such as enteric neurons.
This deficiency in turn effects the absorption in the terminal ileum as gastric mucosal cells are required for transport through the intestinal mucosa.
