The aim of this study was to determine the efficacy of VSL#3 as a primary therapy in the treatment of colitis in the interleukin (IL)-10 gene-deficient mouse. Mechanisms of action of VSL#3 were investigated in T(84) monolayers. (More)
Stanniocalcin (STC) is an anti-hypercalcemic glycoprotein hormone previously identified in the corpuscles of Stannius in bony fish and recently in the human genome. This study undertook to express human STC in Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells and to determine its effects on calcium and phosphate absorption in swine and rat intestine. Unidirectional(More)
In the intestine, epithelial cells continually produce and secrete low levels of nitric oxide (NO). Salmonella sp. invade epithelium by responding to environmental stimuli. The aims of this study were to determine the effect of reactive nitrogen intermediates (RNIs) on S. dublin and S. typhimurium growth and invasion of T84 epithelial monolayers.(More)
