Association of Csk to VE‐cadherin and inhibition of cell proliferation
The results suggest that the phosphorylated tyrosine residue 685 of VE‐cadherin and probably the binding of Csk to this site are involved in inhibition of cell growth triggered by cell density.
Comparative study of the intestinal mucus barrier in normal and inflamed colon
The large bowel mucus layer effectively prevents contact between the highly concentrated luminal bacteria and the epithelial cells in all parts of the normal colon.
Annexin A1 Regulates Intestinal Mucosal Injury, Inflammation, and Repair1
It is demonstrated that AnxA1-deficient animals exhibit increased susceptibility to dextran sulfate sodium (DSS)-induced colitis with greater clinical morbidity and histopathologic mucosal injury, and a role of endogenous AnXA1 in the protective and reparative properties of the intestinal mucosal epithelium is supported.
Investigating the role of proinflammatory CD16+ monocytes in the pathogenesis of inflammatory bowel disease
The data suggest that lamina propria, but not peripheral blood, CD16+ monocytes are a crucial proinflammatory cell population in IBD, and a potential target for anti‐inflammatory therapy.

The life and death of epithelia during inflammation: lessons learned from the gut.
How inflammatory cytokines and other signaling molecules, directly or through cross talk, regulate epithelial homeostasis in the intestine is discussed, and parallels and differences in a few other organs are highlighted.
JAM‐A regulates epithelial proliferation through Akt/β‐catenin signalling
It is demonstrated that JAM‐A restricts intestinal epithelial cell (IEC) proliferation in a dimerization‐dependent manner, by inhibiting Akt‐dependent β‐catenin activation.
