The sequential proliferation, lineage-specific differentiation, migration and death of the epithelial cells of the intestinal mucosa is a tightly regulated process modulated by a broad range of regulatory peptides, neurotransmitters, bioactive lipids and differentiation signals. Many of these stimuli act through heptahelical G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs). Despite their fundamental importance, the intracellular signal transduction mechanisms involved remain incompletely understood. Protein...
