How fatty acids stimulate enteroendocrine cells to release cholecystokinin (CCK) is largely unknown. Recently, we proposed that the murine enteroendocrine cell line, STC-1, responds to insoluble fatty acid aggregates rather than fatty acid monomers in solution. This hypothesis led to two testable predictions. First, other insoluble particles of similar size but unrelated to fatty acid may be able to stimulate STC-1 cells in a similar fashion to dodecanoic acid and second, fatty acid sensing i...Expand abstract

Calcium mobilisation and CCK secretion induced by modified fatty acids and latex microspheres reveal dual receptor mechanisms for lipid stimulation of STC-1 cells.
