Biochemical and molecular impacts of lactoferrin on small intestinal growth and development during early life

Liao, Yalin; Jiang, R.; Lonnerdal, Bo

Description

Postnatal modeling of the intestinal epithelium has long-term impacts on the healthy development of infants and relies largely on nutrient composition of the diet. Lactoferrin (Lf) is among the various human milk trophic factors that facilitate the infant intestinal adaptation. Hydrolysis of Lf is minimal at the prevailing postprandial pH of infants, and Lf may therefore have greater biological potential in infants than in adults. Lf bidirectionally stimulates concentration-dependent...[Show more]
