G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) have the potential to play a role as molecular sensors responsive to luminal dietary contents. Although such a role for GPCRs has been implicated in the intestinal response to protein hydrolysate, no GPCR directly involved in this process has been previously identified. In the present study, for the first time, we(More)
In the intestinal lumen, protein hydrolysate increases the transcription and release of cholecystokinin (CCK) from enteroendocrine cells of the duodenal-jejunal mucosa. Our recent discovery that a G protein-coupled receptor, GPR93, is activated by dietary protein hydrolysate causing induced intracellular calcium-mediated signaling events in intestinal(More)
