The active transport of ions by the intestinal epithelium is regulated by a number of enteric neurotransmitters, hormones and other substances. Our knowledge of the receptors mediating the actions of these substances is generally fragmentary. This review summarizes current knowledge on the location and functional characteristics of transmitter receptors regulating transport function in the small intestine, highlighting recent research on cholinergic and bradykinin receptors.
