The intestinal mucosae wall is the first site of interaction of food components with an organism. It plays several roles: It selects nutrients for absorption, it signals the whole organism about the composition of our meals and it keeps our organism free from any possible danger. The intestinal wall also allocates microbiota, which is highly modulated by the diet. To perform all these activities a different cellular composition along the tube and a high degree of regeneration are required. In this special issue the most recent advances in this door to the inner part of all of us will be shown.
