Saccharomyces boulardii (S. boulardii), a biotherapeutic agent effective in acute and chronic enterocolopathies, produces trophic intestinal effects at least in part mediated by the endoluminal release of polyamines. However, the effects of the yeast on peptide hydrolysis have not yet been studied. The objectives of this study were to assess in suckling rats the endoluminal and mucosal aminopeptidase activities in response to S. boulardii treatment and to analyze their related mechanisms… CONTINUE READING
