The epithelial monolayer that lines the mammalian small intestine is both the route of nutrient absorption and an active barrier between the external environment and the circulation. Expansion of the surface area for the absorption of nutrients also increases the risk of mucosal colonization by potential pathogens. Lieberkühn crypts (intestinal crypts), which are blind invaginations of the intestinal mucosa are ideal microniches for bacterial growth. Nevertheless, the bacterial density of the… CONTINUE READING
