Critical review: vegetables and fruit in the prevention of chronic diseases
BackgroundVegetables and fruit provide a significant part of human nutrition, as they are important sources of nutrients, dietary fibre, and phytochemicals. However, it is uncertain whether the riskExpand

Interleukin-10 blocked endoplasmic reticulum stress in intestinal epithelial cells: impact on chronic inflammation.
BACKGROUND & AIMS The initiation of endoplasmic reticulum (ER)-mediated stress responses in intestinal epithelial cells (IEC) may contribute to the pathogenesis of chronic intestinal inflammation.Expand

Metabolic activation of intrahepatic CD8+ T cells and NKT cells causes nonalcoholic steatohepatitis and liver cancer via cross-talk with hepatocytes.
Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), the fastest rising cancer in the United States and increasing in Europe, often occurs with nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH). Mechanisms underlying NASH andExpand

High-fat diet alters gut microbiota physiology in mice
The intestinal microbiota is known to regulate host energy homeostasis and can be influenced by high-calorie diets. However, changes affecting the ecosystem at the functional level are still not wellExpand

Metabolic and functional properties of lactic acid bacteria in the gastro-intestinal ecosystem: a comparative in vitro study between bacteria of intestinal and fermented food origin.
Metabolic and functional properties of probiotic lactic acid bacteria (LAB) in the human gastro-intestinal ecosystem may be related to certain beneficial health effects. In this study, lactobacilliExpand

PASylation: a biological alternative to PEGylation for extending the plasma half-life of pharmaceutically active proteins
A major limitation of biopharmaceutical proteins is their fast clearance from circulation via kidney filtration, which strongly hampers efficacy both in animal studies and in human therapy. We haveExpand

Non-pathogenic bacteria elicit a differential cytokine response by intestinal epithelial cell/leucocyte co-cultures
BACKGROUND AND AIM Intestinal epithelial cells (IEC) are thought to participate in the mucosal defence against bacteria and in the regulation of mucosal tissue homeostasis. Reactivity of IEC toExpand

Induction of dsRNA-activated protein kinase links mitochondrial unfolded protein response to the pathogenesis of intestinal inflammation
Objective Inflammatory bowel diseases (IBDs) feature multiple cellular stress responses, including endoplasmic reticulum (ER) unfolded protein responses (UPRs). UPRs represent autoregulatory pathwaysExpand

Differential protein expression profile in the intestinal epithelium from patients with inflammatory bowel disease.
The loss of intestinal epithelial cell (IEC) function is a critical component in the initiation and perpetuation of chronic intestinal inflammation in the genetically susceptible host. We appliedExpand
