Activation of enteroendocrine cells via TLRs induces hormone, chemokine, and defensin secretion.

Abstract

Enteroendocrine cells are known primarily for their production of hormones that affect digestion, but they might also be implicated in sensing and neutralizing or expelling pathogens. We evaluate the expression of TLRs and the response to specific agonists in terms of cytokines, defensins, and hormones in enteroendocrine cells. The mouse enteroendocrine… (More)
