Effect of volatile fatty acids on water and ion absorption from the goat colon



Effect of volatile fatty acids on water and ion absorption from the goat colon



American Journal of Physiology 229(4): 997-1002



Absorption of volatile fatty acids (VFA) and influence of VFA on net transport of inorganic electrolytes and water were studied in the temporarily isolated colon of the conscious goat. Perfusion of the colon with a solution similar in content to that normally present in caecal outflow showed that net absorption of VFA was more rapid than that of any other ion present in the solution. When VFA were replaced with Cl, net absorption of Na and water was reduced.
