The intestinal frontier integrity: the tight junctions

Speaker: Dr Raquel MARTIN-VENEGAS, Fac Pharmacy, FFUB, Barcelona, Spain

The selectivity of the intestinal frontier is ensured by the good functioning of the tight functions. Their complex protein structure helps to ensure the intestinal frontier integrity and most of the absorption through the enterocytes and the transcellular pathway. Dietary solutions, such as OH-Met, pro- and pre-biotics can strengthen the tight junctions and thus the intestinal frontier.
