Serotonin has been shown to alter the intestinal transport of ions and intestinal motility. These effects may interfere with each other, modulating the whole physiology of the intestine. We have previously shown that serotonin also alters the transport of nutrients. Thus, the aims of the present work were to determine the possible interference between the secretagogue effect of serotonin and the mechanism by which serotonin inhibits the absorption of nutrients, and to study the effect of… CONTINUE READING
