Butyrate stimulates the activity of the important anti-inflammatory alkaline phosphatase: helping to detoxify the bacterial endotoxins among with LPS and flagellin.
Inducible Heat Shock Proteins (HSP27 and HSP70) maybe activated under stressful conditions to protect the gut.
The endogenous bacteria produced butyrate has been shown to stimulates the iHSP helping the gut. Lastly the role of butyrate as histone deacetylase inhibitor demonstrates its potential on epigenetics.
