AIM To clarify the roles of TWEAK and its receptor Fn14 in 5-fluorouracil (5-FU)-induced diarrhea. METHODS Diarrhea was induced in wild-type (WT), Fn14 knockout (KO), and IL-13 receptor (IL-13R)α1 KO BALB/c mice using a single injection of 5-FU. Histological analysis, cytokine analysis, and flow cytometry was performed on ileal tissues and cells. Murine(More)
