Scholarcy highlights

  • The rapidly evolving field of lipid absorption is reviewed with the thrust of new knowledge focused on the interpendency of the luminal and cellular phases of absorption
  • To date little attention has been paid to factors that regulate the phospholipid biosynthesis in the enterocyte
  • The effects of these dietary fats on the transport of nutrients across the enterocyte are not yet known, nor are the mechanisms responsible for the adaptive responses of the brush border identified
