Patients with postinfective irritable bowel syndrome and Trichinella spiralis-infected mice share many features including visceral hypersensitivity and disordered motility. We assessed enterochromaffin (EC) numbers and serotonin transporter (SERT) using National Institute of Health (NIH) female mice studied for up to 56 days post-T. spiralis infection. The effects of steroid treatment and the T-cell dependence of the observed responses were assessed by infection of hydrocortisone-treated or T-cell receptor knock out [TCR (betaxdelta) KO] animals. Enterochromaffin cell density in uninfected animals increased from duodenum 10.0 cells mm-2 (5.9-41.0) to colon 61.8. (46.3-162) cells mm-2 P|0.0001. Infection increased duodenal and jejunal counts which rose to 37.3 (22-57.7) cells mm-2 and 50.6 (7-110.8) cells mm-2, respectively, at day 14. Infection significantly reduced jejunal SERT expression, with luminance values falling from 61.0 (45.1-98.3) to a nadir of 11.6 (0-36.0) units at day 9, P|0.001. Specific
The intestine tells the brain about the contents of the gut. But insights into the molecular mechanics of this gut-brain conversation have been stalled by technical limitations. Now, examinations of a key type of gut sensory cell within mouse intestinal organoids and tissue sections have revealed which molecular signals activate these so-called enterochromaffin cells, and how the cells relay the compounds presence to the central nervous system. The findings are reported today (June 22) in Cell.. It really is stellar work, says anatomist and neuroscientist John Cryan of University College Cork in Ireland who was not involved in the work. Its asking a big question, and using state of the art tools [to find answers] . . . Its a tour de force.. The big question to which Cryan refers is, what is the function of enterochromaffin cells? Weve known that these cells are really important but weve lacked the tools to study them, he says, Theyve been a real black box.. Enterochromaffin cells ...
Background & Aims: Enterochromaffin (EC) cells are dispersed throughout the gastrointestinal (GI) mucosa and are the main source of 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) in the gut. 5-HT has been implicated in the pathophysiology of a number of GI disorders but the mechanisms regulating the 5-HT production in the gut are unknown. This study investigated the role of CD4+ T cells in 5-HT production using a model of enteric parasitic infection. Methods & Results: Severe combined immune deficiency (SCID) mice and their wild-type controls were infected with nematode, Trichuris muris and euthanized on various days post-infection to study colonic EC cells and 5-HT. The number of EC cells and 5-HT were significantly higher in infected wild-type mice compared to non-infected mice. EC cells numbers and 5-HT amount were significantly lower in SCID mice after infection as compared to wild-type mice. Numbers of EC cells and 5-HT amount significantly increased following reconstitution of SCID mice with CD4+ T cells from ...
The synthesis of 5-HT, in EC cells, is catalyzed by the enzyme tryptophan hydroxylase 1 (TpH1) from the amino acid L-tryptophan. The reaction proceeds in two stages with an initial rate limiting step involving the conversion of L-tryptophan to 5-hydroxytryptophan (5-HTP). Following conversion to 5-HTP, the non-rate limiting L-amino acid decarboxylase converts 5-HTP to 5-HT by decarboxylation. Following synthesis, 5-HT is then stored in vesicles by vesicular monoamine transporter 1 close to the basal margin of the cell for eventual secretion.[2] Release of the vesicles occurs after chemical, neurological or mechanical stimulation of the EC cells and is predominantly calcium dependent, suggesting excretion via exocytosis. The combined effect of increased calcium flux and a liberation of stored calcium within the cell changes the cell potential triggering release of the 5-HT vesicles.[13] The vesicles pass from the basal margin into the surrounding lamina propria for interaction with nearby nerve ...
History. In the 1930s, Erspamer began to study the distribution of enterochromaffin cells, which stained with a reagent for indoles. The highest concentrations were found in GI mucosa, followed by platelets and the CNS. Soon thereafter, Page and colleagues isolated and chemically characterized a vasoconstrictor substance released from platelets in clotting blood. This substance, named serotonin, was shown to be identical to the indole isolated by Erspamer. Subsequent discovery of biosynthetic and degradative pathways for 5-HT and clinical presentation of patients with carcinoid tumors of intestinal enterochromaffin cells spurred interest in 5-HT. The gross effects of 5-HT, produced in excess in malignant carcinoid, gave some indication of the physiologic and pharmacologic actions of 5-HT, as did the identification of several naturally occurring and semi-synthetic tryptamine-like substances that were hallucinogenic and induced behavioral effects similar to those observed in carcinoid patients. In ...
Traditionally, gastric carcinoid type 1 (GCA1s) are endoscopically or surgically removed, depending on the number, appearance and size of the tumors. Antrectomy, with surgical excision of the majority of the G cells, is thought to facilitate regression of these tumors by removing the source of excessive gastrin secretion; however, the long-term benefits of antrectomy still remain uncertain. Although proton pump inhibitors are effective in reducing hypergastrinemia-induced gastric acid hypersecretion in GCA2, they do not affect ECL-cell hyperplasia, and therefore their role in GCA1 is limited. Moreover, in selected cases, significant reduction of hypergastrinemia does not prevent development of ECL carcinoid, suggesting that, in addition to hypergastrinemia, other pathogenic or genetic factors may be involved. Treatment with somatostatin analogues (SSA) might impede ECL-cell hyperplasia by suppressing gastrin secretion and/or by a direct anti-proliferative effect on ECL cells. Treatment with SSAs ...

The gastric mucosa or epithelium consists of numerous glands, many of which open into a common outlet (gastric pits) on the surface of the mucosa. The glands have various types of cells each performing a different function. The parietal cells secrete hydrochloric acid and intrinsic factor (IF), the chief cells secrete pepsinogen, and the neuro-endocrine cells secrete gastrin (G cells) and somatostatin (D cells), and enterochromaffin cells secrete histamine ...
This group includes drugs that interact with specific serotonin or 5-HT (5-hydroxytryptamine) receptors. Serotonin contains almost all organs and tissues, however, more than 90% found in enterochromaffin cells of the gastrointestinal tract. Blood accumulates serotonin (active transport) in platelets, in the Central nervous system in serotonergic neurons; the latter it is synthesized and released.. Pharmacological effects of serotonin are mediated by the excitation of 5-HT1, 5-HT2 and 5-HT3-type serotonin receptors. Its main effect is the contraction of smooth muscle, vasoconstriction (except of vessels in skeletal muscle and heart), increased blood pressure, activation of platelet aggregation, increased tone and peristalsis of the gastrointestinal tract, stimulation of pain and the development of nausea and vomiting. Some serotonergic agents (serotonin, Maximin, etc.) stimulate serotonin receptors and are used primarily in hemorrhagic syndrome, Hypo - and aplastic anemia, hemorrhagic vasculitis, ...

The peristaltic reflex can be evoked in the absence of input from the CNS because the responsible neural pathways are intrinsic to the intestine. Mucosal enterochromaffin cells have been postulated to be pressure transducers, which activate the intrinsic sensory neurons that initiate the reflex by secreting 5-HT. All of the criteria necessary to establish 5-HT as this transmitter have been fulfilled previously, except that no mucosal mechanism for 5-HT inactivation was known. In the current investigation, desensitization of 5-HT receptors was demonstrated to inhibit the peristaltic reflex in the guinea pig large intestine in vitro. At low concentration (1.0 nM), the 5-HT uptake inhibitor fluoxetine potentiated the reflex, but higher concentrations blocked it, suggesting that the peristaltic reflex depends on the 5-HT transporter-mediated inactivation of 5-HT. Specific (Na+ -dependent, fluoxetine-sensitive) uptake of 3H-5-HT by intestinal crypt epithelial cells was found by radioautography. mRNA ...

The digestive tract is endowed using its own, regional anxious system, known as the enteric anxious system (ENS). secretomotor neurons in enteric pathways. This aftereffect of cholera toxin depends upon 5-HT3, nicotinic, and neurokinin 1 receptors. Cholera toxin can be thought to stimulate neural pathways via discharge of 5-HT from enterochromaffin cells, which depends upon 5-HT3 receptors. Hyperactivity of secretomotor neuronal activity also elevates CLDN5 Cl? secretion and induces neurogenic secretory diarrhea. In meals allergy symptoms and inflammatory areas, mast cell mediators, including histamine, serotonin, and prostaglandins, elevate secretomotor firing, which stimulates the secretion of NaCl and huge amounts of H2O. The ENS and Irritation in the tiny Intestine Irritation causes significant adjustments in intestinal features including motility, secretion, and feeling [48]. The interplay between ENS and irritation highlights the lifestyle of close connections between ENS and enteric ...
Fasting is a good spiritual cleansing tool as it decreases production of serotonin in the enterochromaffin cells in the lining of the stomach and intestines.

Toxins are potent molecules used by various bacteria to interact with a host organism. Some of them specifically act on neuronal cells (clostridial neurotoxins) leading to characteristics neurological affections. But many other toxins are multifunctional and recognize a wider range of cell types including neuronal cells. Various enterotoxins interact with the enteric nervous system, for example by stimulating afferent neurons or inducing neurotransmitter release from enterochromaffin cells which result either in vomiting, in amplification of the diarrhea, or in intestinal inflammation process. Other toxins can pass the blood brain barrier and directly act on specific neurons.
We read with interest the article by Klinkenberg-Knol and coworkers [1] on omeprazole safety and the accompanying editorial by Freston [2]. Although the report by Klinkenberg-Knol and colleagues [1] offered a well-balanced description of gastrin values and micronodular neuroendocrine cell hyperplasia in the oxyntic mucosa of many patients receiving omeprazole maintenance treatment, the editorial [2] tended to underestimate the risks for hypergastrinemia. Thus, it was not considered that the maximal functional and trophic effects of gastrin in the rat and in humans on the enterochromaffin-like (ECL) cell are reached at a concentration of less than 500 pM [3]. Therefore, greatly elevated gastrin values in patients with pernicious anemia are irrelevant. It is speculative to propose that the ECL-cell hyperplasia in patients with omeprazole-induced hypergastrinemia is the result of gastritis [4] because it is well known that hypergastrinemia itself is sufficient to provoke such changes in animals. ...
In this study we studied two aspects of enterochromaffin cell function; the nature of both the acute and chronic response to increased glucose availability. We demonstrate using intact tissue preparations and single cell approaches that acute increases in glucose, at levels found in the gut lumen rather than in plasma, trigger Ca2+ entry and 5-HT secretion in EC cells. Furthermore, this increased 5-HT release occurs through an increase in the amount of 5-HT released from vesicles in each exocytosis event. The effects of a more chronic exposure to high glucose, this time at levels akin to those observed in plasma post-prandially, cause a reduction in the synthesis and release of EC cell 5-HT. Thus EC cells respond in a diverse manner to different glucose concentrations over different periods of time to either increase or suppress 5-HT output.. Our data in intact colon tissue is the first ex vivo demonstration that EC cells are glucose-sensing cells. This is in agreement with earlier findings in ...
P = .001).. How It Works. Palonosetron (available in single-agent form as Aloxi) is a 5-HT3 receptor antagonist that exhibits strong binding affinity for this receptor and little or no affinity for other receptors. 5-HT3 receptors are located on the nerve terminals of the vagus in the periphery and centrally in the chemoreceptor trigger zone of the area postrema.. Chemotherapeutic agents produce nausea and vomiting by stimulating the release of serotonin from the enterochromaffin cells of the small intestine. Serotonin then activates 5-HT3 receptors located on vagal afferents to initiate the vomiting reflex. Development of acute emesis depends on serotonin, and its 5-HT3 receptors have been shown to selectively stimulate the emetic response.. Netupitant is a selective antagonist of substance P/neurokinin 1 receptors. Delayed emesis is largely associated with substance P activation of tachykinin family neurokinin 1 receptors, distributed in the central and peripheral nervous systems. Netupitant ...

PCAs target gastric H+/K+ATPase (4). Acid output was lower in PCA+ patients. Achlorhydria interrupts the negative feedback of somatostatin on antral G-cells, thus inducing hypergastrinemia, a trophic stimulus for ECL cell proliferation. We and others demonstrated a positive correlation between gastrin and ECL cell density (21,27). Also, CgA levels were increased in all patients with ECL cell hyper/dysplasia. ECL cells may release CgA into the circulation (21,22). Multivariate regression showed that the CgA level was determined by ECL cell density and gastrin level, as shown before (13,21,22,28).. The degree of ECL cell hyper/dysplasia is important in determining the risk of carcinoid tumor. CgA may indicate the presence of an increased gastric ECL cell mass more accurately than histology. This is supported by the correlations we found between CgA and gastrin and ECL cell proliferative changes. The assessment of gastric ECL cell proliferation is hampered by the fact that such lesions are usually ...
The gastric enterochromaffin-like (ECL) cell se cretes histamine in response to secretagogues (gastrin, acetylcholine) by calcium signaling-dependent exocytosis of intracellular vacuoles containing the hormone. ECL cells were isolated from rat fundic gastric mucosa by elutriation and density-gradient centrifugation. Currents across the plasma membrane were measured using whole cell patch-clamp methods. These cells had a low conductance of 0.5 nS and resting potential of -50 mV Depolarization activated a K+ current that was blocked by Ba2+. Steady-state current in absence of K+ was due to Cl- because of the magnitude of the reversal potential and the effects of Cl- removal. Stimulation of secretion by gastrin, cholecystokinin octapeptide (CCK-8), and the phorbol ester 12-O-tetradecanoylphorbol 13-acetate activated the Cl- conductance with a time course similar to that of histamine release. Therefore the ECL cell maintains a high resting potential, largely due to K+ currents, and stimulation of ...

Tryptophan is an important dietary amino acid and it is the precursor for 5-hydroxytryptamine synthesis in the nervous system and by enterochromaffin cells in the gut mucosa. Tryptophan is also metabolized by enzymes in the gut mucosa and also by enzymes produced by the gut microbiome. Diet and the microbiome can contribute to metabolic disease in part by causing intestinal inflammation and increased permeability. In this issue of Neurogastroenterology and Motility, Jennis et al. test the hypothesis that indole tryptophan metabolites produced by gut bacteria might be responsible for the anti-inflammatory and beneficial metabolic effects of the gut microbiome and Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery for weight loss by obese patients ...
*Promotes GI motility MotilPro supports serotonergic and cholinergic neurotransmission in the GI tract. 5-HTP is absorbed by enterochromaffin cells in the epithelium, in which it is decarboxylated to serotonin using pyridoxal 5 phosphate as a cofactor. 5-HTP stimulates enteric neurons through activation of 5HT4 receptors. Ginger modulates serotonin signaling by additional 5HT4 stimulation and by binding type 3 (5HT3) receptors in the enteric nervous system and brain stem, supporting gastric emptying, intestinal transit, healthy visceral sensation and upper GI comfort. Acetyl-l-carnitine supports autonomic neuronal health and contributes acetyl groups for the synthesis of acetylcholine, supporting neurotransmission of signals to encourage healthy motility.

My research interest is studying the roles of epigenetic genes that control gut neuromuscular disorders. The gut is a vital organ as it is where food is digested, where nutrients are absorbed into the bloodstream, and where undigested waste moves through and leaves the body. This digestive process is achieved by the synchronized movement (motility) of gastrointestinal (GI) muscles, which mixes food and propels the digested content through the GI tract.. Several cell types control GI motility: enteric nervous system (ENS), interstitial cells of Cajal (ICC), PDGFRα+ cells (fibroblast-like cells), and smooth muscle cells (SMC). ICC generates spontaneous electrical slow waves, ENS produces complex rhythmic motor behavior, and PDGFRα+ cells mediate enteric inhibitory responses, all of which control SMC, the final effectors for muscle contraction and muscle relaxation. In addition, enteroendocrine cells such as enterochromaffin (EC) cells secreting serotonin produce GI hormones or peptides that ...
In two 24-month carcinogenicity studies in rats, omeprazole at daily doses of 1.7, 3.4, 13.8, 44.0 and 140.8 mg/kg/day (about 0.4 to 34 times a human dose of 40 mg/day, as expressed on a body surface area basis) produced gastric ECL cell carcinoids in a dose-related manner in both male and female rats; the incidence of this effect was markedly higher in female rats, which had higher blood levels of omeprazole. Gastric carcinoids seldom occur in the untreated rat. In addition, ECL cell hyperplasia was present in all treated groups of both sexes. In one of these studies, female rats were treated with 13.8 mg omeprazole/kg/day (about 3.4 times a human dose of 40 mg/day, based on body surface area) for one year, and then followed for an additional year without the drug. No carcinoids were seen in these rats. An increased incidence of treatment-related ECL cell hyperplasia was observed at the end of one year (94% treated vs 10% controls). By the second year the difference between treated and control ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Gastric neuroendocrine neoplasms and related precursor lesions. AU - La Rosa, Stefano. AU - Vanoli, Alessandro. PY - 2015. Y1 - 2015. N2 - Gastric neuroendocrine neoplasms (NENs) are a heterogeneous group of tumours showing different clinicopathological features and behaviour, implying a wide spectrum of therapeutic options. They are currently classified using the 2010 WHO classification of digestive neuroendocrine neoplasms into G1-neuroendocrine tumours (NETs), G2-NETs, neuroendocrine carcinomas (NECs) and mixed adenoneuroendocrine carcinomas (MANECs). However, most gastric NENs are composed of ECL-cells (ECL-cell NETs) that can be preceded by ECL-cell hyperplastic and dysplastic lesions, whose oncologic potential has not yet been completely elucidated. ECL-cell NETs differ considerably in terms of prognosis depending on the proliferative status and clinicopathological background. The integration of both aspects in the diagnostic pathway may help to better classify tumours in ...

Introduction: Carcinoid tumors are neuroendocrine tumors derived from enterochromaffin or Kulchitsky cells (that secretes serotonin or other chemicals into bloodstream), which are widely distributed in the body, but they are traditionally described as originating from the foregut, midgut, and hindgut. A case of carcinoid syndrome is reported.. Case: A 55-year-old man with medical history of Parkinson disease. Was admitted to internal medicine outpatient clinic for with history of diarrhea, abdominal pain, irregular bowel movements dyspepsia and weight loss, asthenia and anorexia, associated with occasional flushing episodes for 10 months.

5-HIAA is tested by 24-hour urine samples combined with an acidic additive to maintain pH below 3. Certain foods and drugs are known to interfere with the measurement. 5-HIAA levels can vary depending on other complications, including tumors, renal malfunction, and small bowel resection. Since 5-HIAA is a metabolite of serotonin, testing is most frequently performed for the diagnosis of carcinoid tumors of the enterochromaffin (Kultschitzsky) cells of the small intestine, which release large amounts of serotonin. Values greater than 25 mg per 24 hours (higher if the patient has malabsorption) are strong evidence for carcinoid. The normal range is 2 to 6 mg per 24 hours.[1] Low levels of 5-HIAA in the cerebrospinal fluid have been associated with aggressive behavior and suicide by violent means, correlating with diminished serotonin levels.[2] Elevated serotonin (hyperserotonemia) is one of the most common biological findings in autism[3] and 5-HIAA may be elevated in patients with autistic ...
Although serotonin is well known as a brain neurotransmitter, it is estimated that 90 percent of the bodys serotonin is made in the digestive tract. In fact, altered levels of this peripheral serotonin have been linked to diseases such as irritable bowel syndrome, cardiovascular disease, and osteoporosis. New research at Caltech, published in the April 9 issue of the journal Cell, shows that certain bacteria in the gut are important for the production of peripheral serotonin.. More and more studies are showing that mice or other model organisms with changes in their gut microbes exhibit altered behaviors, explains Elaine Hsiao, research assistant professor of biology and biological engineering and senior author of the study. We are interested in how microbes communicate with the nervous system. To start, we explored the idea that normal gut microbes could influence levels of neurotransmitters in their hosts.. Peripheral serotonin is produced in the digestive tract by enterochromaffin (EC) ...

Background Esophageal tumor (EC) is one of the deadliest cancers worldwide. protein levels. A dual-luciferase reporter gene assay was used to set up the interactions among circRNA-0008717, miR-203, and Slug. Results circRNA-0008717 expression was significantly upregulated in EC cells, and miR-2031 expression was decreased. Moreover, si-circRNA-0008717 or si-Slug inhibited the proliferation, migration, and invasion of EC cells. We found that circRNA-0008717 functioned as a sponge of miR-203, resulting in increased expression of Slug. We also reversed the effect of circRNA-0008717 knockdown on the EC progression by co-transfecting EC cells with a miR-203 inhibitor or Slug. Conclusions The proliferation, invasion, and migration of EC cells were enhanced by circRNA-0008717 sponging the miR-203 to increase Slug expression. was used to normalize the transcript levels of circRNA-0008717 and Slug.

Treatment of mice with antibiotics improves host glucose tolerance, and reduces fat mass and obesity (5, 6), while colonization of GF mice with microbiota from obese mice (1) and humans (4) conveys glucose intolerance in the host. How this occurs remains unknown. Resident cells within the gut wall are leading candidates, as their location enables them to convey microbial signals to the host. Approximately 90% of total body serotonin (5-hydroxytryptophan [5-HT]) is synthesized in nonneuronal cells lining the gut wall, called enterochromaffin (EC) cells (7). The gut microbiome signals to EC cells through microbial metabolites, including short-chain fatty acids and secondary bile acids (8⇓-10), with mucosal 5-HT substantially reduced in GF and antibiotic-treated mice due to decreased EC cell numbers and ...
Carcinoid heart disease occurs in more than 50% of patients with carcinoid tumors.1 Enterochromaffin cell-derived neuroendocrine tumors metastasize to the liver and secrete serotonin, which travels to the right heart causing deposits of fibrous material on valves.1 Left-sided valvular involvement is rare, and it is postulated that serotonin is inactivated in the pulmonary circulation.2,3 The presence of a PFO could lead to left-sided pathology2-4 and was therefore surgically closed in our patient. The fibrous plaque deposition causes valves and tendinous cords to thicken and shorten.4 The thickened valves are often retracted and immobile, resulting in regurgitation and stenosis. TR is most common (97%) followed by tricuspid stenosis (59%), PR (50%), and pulmonary stenosis (25%).2. Others have reported TV involvement in carcinoid heart disease.3,5 We report a classic case of carcinoid heart disease in which both the TV and PV had become retracted and immobile resulting in regurgitation. Although ...
In the new study, the researchers created intestinal organoids-tiny organs in a laboratory dish-from mice. The researchers added a fluorescent protein to the EC cells from these animals so that the cells could be easily identified under a microscope. These so-called mini guts stay true to the three-dimensional arrangement of the gut. In this way they mimic the natural gut environment much more realistically compared to other methods, Julius said.. The team used the mini guts to identify the substances that the EC cells recognize. Out of 30 different substances known to be present in the gut, only seven consistently activated EC cells. The fact that all seven had already been linked to inflammation in the gut suggests that EC cells may play an important role in visceral pain.. The researchers went on to identify the corresponding proteins present in EC cells that recognize these substances. Then, they used the mini guts to show that the EC cells could release serotonin onto nearby cells.. EC ...

A large amount of gastrin is secreted from antral G cells in response to achlorhydria in Type A gastritis. The hypergastrinemia has a trophic action on the enterochromaffin-like cells in the gastric fornix. This is a pathogenesis of Type 1 gastric carcinoid. We report a case of Type 1 gastric carcinoid treated by antrectomy. A 38-year-old man was found to have multiple polyps from the fornix to the upper gastric body with atrophic gastritis by gastroscopy. Polyp biopsy showed them to be carcinoid ...
AIM: To study the different endocrine cell types in the oxyntic mucosa of patients with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).. METHODS: Seventy-six patients with IBS were included in the study (62 females and 14 males; mean age 32 years, range 18-55 years), of which 40 also fulfilled the Rome III criteria for functional dyspepsia (FDP). Of the entire IBS cohort, 26 had diarrhea as the predominant symptom (IBS-D), 21 had a mixture of diarrhea and constipation (IBS-M), and 29 had constipation as the predominant symptom (IBS-C). Forty-three age and sex-matched healthy volunteers without any gastrointestinal complaints served as controls. The patients were asked to complete the Birmingham IBS symptom questionnaire. Both the patients and controls underwent a standard gastroscopy, during which three biopsy samples were taken from the corpus. Sections from these biopsy samples were immunostained using the avidin-biotin complex (ABC) method, for ghrelin, serotonin, somatostatin and histamine. The densities of ...
At a Glance Clinical manifestations of Zollinger-Ellison syndrome (ZES), a syndrome caused by a gastrin-secreting neuroendocrine tumor (gastrinoma), result from high gastric acid output due to hypertrophy of parietal and histamine-secreting enterochromaffin-like (ECL) cells, as well as direct stimulation of parietal cells. More than 90% of patients develop peptic ulcers, but only a small number…. ...
