Epithelial cells lining the surface of the intestinal epithelium are in direct contact with a luminal environment that varies dramatically with diet. It has long been suggested that the intestinal epithelium can sense the nutrient composition of luminal contents. It is only recently that the natures of intestinal nutrientsensing molecules and underlying mechanisms have been elucidated.
