To characterize the role of intestinal epithelial cells in mucosal host defense, we have examined endogenous antioxidant reactivity and inflammatory response in Caco-2 cell line. When differentiated Caco-2 cells were incubated with iron/ascorbate for 1-24 h, they exhibited increased malondialdehyde levels and decreased polyunsaturated fatty acid proportion(More)
BACKGROUND Membrane lipid peroxidation may play a role in immune-mediated bowel diseases. OBJECTIVE We examined the effects of lipopolysaccharide (LPS), a ubiquitous endotoxin mediator of gram-negative bacteria, alone and in combination with iron-ascorbate, on enterocyte function. Furthermore, we assessed the antioxidant capacity of butylated(More)
