Gastrointestinal (GI) polypeptides are secreted from enteroendocrine cells (EECs). Recent technical advances and the identification of endogenous and synthetic ligands have enabled exploration of the pharmacology and physiology of EECs. Enteroendocrine signaling pathways stimulating hormone secretion involve multiple nutrient transporters and G(More)
The field of intestinal physiology has been transformed by the discovery that nutrient-sensitive chemosensors are strategically positioned within the gastrointestinal tract to regulate nutrient absorption and gut hormone secretion. It is well established that the composition of the diet modulates the absorptive capacity of the intestine and the secretion of(More)
Transepithelial transport of Na(+) across the lung epithelium via amiloride-sensitive Na(+) channels (ENaC) regulates fluid volume in the lung lumen. Activators of AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK), the adenosine monophosphate mimetic AICAR, and the biguanide metformin decreased amiloride-sensitive apical Na(+) conductance (G(Na+)) in human H441 airway(More)
