BACKGROUND & AIMS 5-Hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) is released from enterochromaffin cells and activates neural reflex programs regulating motility and secretion. Although sugars are reported to release 5-HT in vivo, it is unclear whether they act directly on enterochromaffin cells or indirectly through an intermediary messenger. The aim was to determine if D-glucose is a stimulus for 5-HT release. METHODS Human BON cells, derived from enterochromaffin cells, were treated with D-glucose, galactose… CONTINUE READING
