Graphical Abstract:


The bioactive peptides are protein fragments which have a positive impact on the intestinal homeostasis. Intestinal homeostasis depends on the diverse functions of intestinal barrier including the microbiological, physical, chemical and immunological barriers. Defects in intestinal barrier function are associated with intestinal diseases. In this review, we will present current knowledge of the crosstalk between bioactive peptides and intestinal barrier during gut homeostasis.

Keywords: Bioactive peptides, chemical barrier, immunological barrier, intestinal homeostasis, microbiological barrier, physical barrier.
