Colon epithelial cells luminal environment and physiopathological consequences: impact of nutrition and exercise

The colonic epithelial cells represent a border between the colon luminal content, containing notably bacteria and a complex mixture of compounds, and the “milieu interieur”. The physical-chemical composition of the luminal content, including luminal pH and bacterial metabolite, that obviously is not constant, is modified for instance according to the diet. Data obtained recently indicate that physical exercise may also modify the colonic luminal content. Open questions remain regarding the individual and collective roles of luminal changes, particularly in a long-term perspective.
