Chronic psychological stress impacts many functions of the gastrointestinal tract. However, the effect of stress on nutrient absorption is poorly documented. This study was designed to investigate glucose transporters in rats submitted to different periods of water-avoidance stress (WAS). Rats were subjected to WAS (1 h/day) for 1, 5, or 10 consecutive days. Four hours after the last WAS session, rats were killed and segments of jejunum were mounted in Ussing chambers to study… CONTINUE READING
