IL-17 plays an important role in gut homeostasis. However, the role of IL-17F in intestinal tumorigenesis has not been addressed. Here we demonstrate that ablation of IL-17F significantly inhibits spontaneous intestinal tumorigenesis in the small intestine of Apc(Min/+) mice. IL-17F ablation decreased IL-1β and Cox-2 expression as well as IL-17 receptor C (IL-17RC) expression, which were increased in tumors from Apc(Min/+) mice. Lack of IL-17F did not reverse the splenomegaly but partially… CONTINUE READING
