Beta1 integrins are anchored on the basal membrane of enterocytes, but little is known about their localization in M cells, which are the main entry route into the intestinal mucosa for many bacterial pathogens. In particular, it has been suggested that adhesion of enteropathogenic Yersinia to M cells is mediated by interaction of the bacterial protein(More)
BACKGROUND & AIMS Cyclooxygenase-2 inhibitors reduce colon cancer risk by mechanisms that are not fully understood. We performed microarray analysis of adenomas from Apc(Delta14/+) mice to identify genes that respond to these drugs. METHODS Apc(Delta14/+) mice were given a single daily injection of parecoxib for up to 9 weeks; intestinal tracts of these(More)
Differentiation of specific epithelial cell lineages during development, as well as epithelial plasticity in response to heterologous cell-to-cell cross talk during adult life, accounts for the large variety of functions which are performed by the mucosal surfaces found in the human body. Among its functions, the digestive mucosa is able to sample antigens(More)
BACKGROUND Point mutations of the PRKAR1A gene are a genetic cause of Carney complex (CNC) and primary pigmented nodular adrenocortical disease (PPNAD), but in 30% of the patients no mutation is detected. OBJECTIVE Set up a routine-based technique for systematic detection of large deletions or duplications of this gene and functionally characterize these(More)
