  • Why is it important to understand the mechanismscontrolling intestinal adaptation? There are two majoranswers to this question. Firstly, in establishing thecellular and molecular events associated with intestinal adaptation, we will formulate ageneral framework that may be applied to theunderstanding of adaptation of other cell membranes. Forexample, alterations in the synthesis of glucosecarriers and their subsequent insertion into membranesmay alter sugar entry across the intestinal brush… CONTINUE READING
