Adaptation and Peptide Growth Factors Over the past decades, several proteins produced by different cells and tissues, designated peptide growth factors, have been reported to play an important role in stimulating enterocyte turnover. Our understanding of the structure and function of the peptide growth factors has advanced rapidly in recent years. Peptide growth factors appear to mediate many of the processes required for normal intestinal growth and differentiation. Every growth factor modulates growth through autocrine, juxtacrine, or paracrine mechanisms and usually acts as a mitogen through the stimulation of specific cell surface receptors.
