... and their elaboration at molecular and genetic levels. This Commentary emphasizes the integration of discrete molecular players and processes (including paracellular absorption) that, in combination, determine the overall epithelial absorption of key nutrients (e.g. sugars, amino acids) and putative anti-nutrients...

...Edwin R. Price; Katherine H. Rott; Enrique Caviedes-Vidal; William H. Karasov Flying vertebrates have been hypothesized to rely heavily on paracellular absorption of nutrients to compensate for having smaller intestines than non-flyers. We tested this hypothesis in an insectivorous bat ( Myotis...

... also had a slightly reduced capacity for absorption of a glucose analogue (3- O -methyl- d -glucose) transported simultaneously by both carrier-mediated and non-mediated mechanisms. Increased paracellular absorption coupled with extended digesta retention time may thus allow migratory blackcaps...

... extremely rapidly. Overall, there appears to be no real advantage in using radiolabeled metabolisable d -glucose over 3-OMG. In the American robin, the difference in the estimated contribution of paracellular absorption did not differ significantly between the two probes( McWhorter et al., 2008 ),however...
