Identification of genes involved in mucosal defense and inflammation associated with normal enteric bacteria.


Normal luminal bacteria and their products play a role in experimental colitis and inflammatory bowel disease. However, what molecules from what cells are responsible for mounting and maintaining the mucosal defense against luminal flora is still uncertain. The aim of this study was to identify epithelial gene products involved in mucosal defense and… (More)
