Effects of changes in calorie intake on intestinal nutrient uptake and transporter mRNA levels in aged mice.

Abstract

In aged, chronically calorie-restricted (CR) mice, intestinal nutrient uptake is significantly higher than in same-age ad libitum controls. Can this chronic restriction-induced enhancement of uptake be reversed by ad libitum feeding? We addressed this question by switching 32-mo-old chronically CR mice to ad libitum feeding for 4 wk (CRAL). Intestinal… (More)
