Glutamine-mediated regulation of heat shock protein expression in intestinal cells.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Glutamine is crucial in the growth and protection of intestinal mucosa; the molecular mechanisms for these effects are not known. Heat shock proteins (hsp) are stress-responsive genes that protect cells from various injuries. The purpose of this study was to determine whether glutamine alters hsp expression in intestinal cells after injury… (More)
