Pancreatic and pancreatic-like microbial proteases accelerate gut maturation in neonatal rats.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Postnatal gut maturation in neonatal mammals, either at natural weaning or after precocious inducement, is coinciding with enhanced enzymes production by exocrine pancreas. Since the involvement of enzymes in gut functional maturation was overlooked, the present study aimed to investigate the role of enzymes in gut functional maturation using neonatal rats.
