Neurotensin (NT), a neuropeptide released in the gastrointestinal tract in response to several stimuli, is involved in the pathophysiology of colonic inflammation. However, the molecular mechanism(s) mediating this proinflammatory response remains unclear. We found that NCM460, non-transformed human colonocytes, express a functional high affinity NT(More)
Interaction of the neuropeptide substance P (SP) and its neurokinin-1 receptor (NK-1R) plays an important role in the pathophysiology of intestinal inflammation. SP is known to stimulate production of interleukin (IL)-6 and IL-8 in the U-373-MG human astrocytoma cell line via activation of p38 MAPK (mitogen-activated protein kinase) and nuclear factor(More)
Neurotensin (NT), a neuropeptide highly expressed in the gastrointestinal tract, participates in the pathophysiology of intestinal inflammation. We recently showed that NT stimulates interleukin-8 (IL-8) expression in NCM460 nontransformed human colonic epithelial cells via both mitogen-activating protein kinase (MAPK)- and NF-kappaB-dependent pathways.(More)
