Intestinal absorption of undegraded proteins in men: presence of bromelain in plasma after oral intake.

Abstract

The human adult intestinal epithelium has traditionally been described as nonpermeable to proteins. However, indirect evidence suggests that reduced absorption of undegraded proteins might take place under physiological conditions. Using bromelain (an enzyme obtained from pineapple stems) as a model protein, we studied the extent of this mucosal permeation… (More)
