The Drosophila immune deficiency pathway modulates enteroendocrine function and host metabolism, Kamareddine et al

In this manuscript, we show that a TNF-like innate immune pathway expressed in enteroendocrine cells is co-opted by commensal bacteria in the intestine to activate expression of enteroendocrine peptides.  For a further description of the work, see the BCH vector blog.  Manuscript link
