Microbial modulation of myoelectric activity in small intestine was studied. Germ-free male Sprague-Dawley rats were equipped with bipolar electrodes from the duodenojejunal junction to the midpoint of small intestine. Prior to and one week after introduction of conventional intestinal microflora, 32±5% and 61±5% (mean±se), respectively, of activity fronts of the migrating myoelectric complex reached the midpoint (P<0.05), and the interval between activity fronts in proximal jejunum was reduced… CONTINUE READING
