Novyrate®: Mode of Action 5. Butyrate acts as signaling molecule. Enteroendocrine cells represent a direct signaling pathway from gut microbes to host metabolism, controlling energy intake and expenditure. Eneteroendocrine cells respond to nutrient intake by secreting hormones.
Also gut microbes have been shown to stimulate gut hormones, probably by the products of bacterial fermentation, the SCFAs. So, the SCFAs function both as energy source and as signaling molecule.
