Chronic intestinal radiation injury is associated with locally increased TGF-beta1 immunoreactivity that correlates with morphological alterations. However, the underlying mechanisms are not known. This study examined changes in intestinal TGF-beta1 immunoreactivity, steady-state TGF-beta1 mRNA levels, and cellular localization of TGF-beta1 mRNA during… CONTINUE READING
