- The Role of Short-Chain Fatty Acid Metabolism in Colonic Disorders. Rabassa, Alfredo A.; Rogers, Arvey I. // American Journal of Gastroenterology;Apr1992, Vol. 87 Issue 4, p419
During the past decade it has become evident that colonic mucosal metabolism is more complex than previously suspected. Luminal short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs) are recognized as an essential fuel source for colonocytes, particularly in the distal colon. Their absence may explain the development...
