Characterization of basal pseudopod-like processes in ileal and colonic PYY cells.
(J Mol Histol, 2011-02)
The peptide tyrosine tyrosine (PYY) is produced and secreted from L cells of the gastrointestinal mucosa. To study the anatomy and function of PYY-secreting L cells, we developed a transgenic PYY-green fluorescent protein ...
An enteroendocrine cell-enteric glia connection revealed by 3D electron microscopy.
(PLoS One, 2014)
The enteroendocrine cell is the cornerstone of gastrointestinal chemosensation. In the intestine and colon, this cell is stimulated by nutrients, tastants that elicit the perception of flavor, and bacterial by-products; ...
Neuroepithelial circuit formed by innervation of sensory enteroendocrine cells.
(J Clin Invest, 2015-02)
Satiety and other core physiological functions are modulated by sensory signals arising from the surface of the gut. Luminal nutrients and bacteria stimulate epithelial biosensors called enteroendocrine cells. Despite being ...
