BACKGROUND AND AIMS The mucus layer of the intestinal tract is the main barrier between luminal microbes and the mucosa, and has an essential role in the body defense mechanisms. Previous research could not establish consistent results for mucin genes expression in Crohn's disease (CD) patients. In this meta-analysis we looked at the mucin expression in CD patients and compared it with healthy controls. METHOD English medical literature searches were conducted for mucin expression in the… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Remission in Crohn’s disease is accompanied by alterations in the gut microbiota and mucins production
The reductions in the proportions of Oscollospira and Akkermansia genera, sulfate-reducing bacteria and Saccharomyces cerevisiae, observed in the CD group, may account for the increased mucins production observed in these patients.
Mucolytic bacteria: prevalence in various pathological diseases.
In this review, paramount emphasis is given to the role played by the bacterial species directly or indirectly involved in mucin degradation, alteration in mucus secretion or its composition or mucin gene expression, which instigates many diseases in the digestive, respiratory, and other organ systems.
Peyer’s patch myeloid cells infection by Listeria signals through gp38+ stromal cells and locks intestinal villus invasion
A novel innate immune response to an enteropathogen is unveiled, which implicates gp38+ stromal cells and locks intestinal villus invasion, but favors colitis.
Insulin Resistance in HIV-Patients: Causes and Consequences
Here we review how immune activation and insulin resistance contribute to the metabolic alterations observed in HIV-infected patients, and how these alterations increase the risk of developing CVD.
Hairy Region Concentrate of Pectin Strongly Stimulates Mucin Secretion in HT29-MTX Cells, but to a Lessor Degree in Rat Small Intestine.
Hairy region concentrate is supposed to be active constituents of mucin-secretory effect of pectin in vitro, however, the effect of HRC has not been verified in vivo.
The protective effect of icariin and phosphorylated icariin against LPS-induced intestinal goblet cell dysfunction
The data suggest that Icariin and phosphorylated icariin effectively attenuate LPS-induced intestinal goblet cell function damage through regulating oxidative stress, inflammation, apoptosis, and mucin expression.
Gut Microbiota Dysbiosis and Chronic Intestinal Inflammation


Abnormalities in mucin gene expression in Crohn's disease
The decrease of expression levels of some mucin genes in both healthy and involved ileal mucosa suggests a primary or very early mucosal defect of these genes in CD.
Aberrant intestinal expression and allelic variants of mucin genes associated with inflammatory bowel disease
The data suggest that the disturbed expression of mucin genes and the connection to the NFκB pathway may influence the integrity of the intestine and therefore contribute to the pathophysiology of IBD.
Mucin gene expression in intestinal epithelial cells in Crohn's disease
The results suggest that gel forming mucins (more particularly MUC5AC and MUC6) may have a role in epithelial wound healing after mucosal injury in inflammatory bowel diseases in addition to mucosal protection.
Mucin Function in Inflammatory Bowel Disease: An Update
This review explores the up-to-date evidence that implicates mucin in the pathogenesis of IBD and identifies the various genetic mutations associated with these changes and outlines the animal models that have enhanced the current understanding of the genetic basis for IBD.
Defective post‐transcriptional processing of MUC2 mucin in ulcerative colitis and in Crohn's disease increases detectability of the MUC2 protein core
The data indicate that the strong M UC2 protein staining in colonic mucosa of patients with UC or CD is due to a long‐term alteration of the post‐transcriptional modification of the MUC2 molecule, leading to its better detectability by the anti‐MUC2 antibody CCP58.
Associations of distinct variants of the intestinal mucin gene MUC3A with ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease
It is reported here that non-synonymous SNPs of MUC3A, involving a tyrosine residue with a proposed role in cell signaling, may confer genetic predisposition to CD (P = 0.0132), and suggest that variants of M UC3A may be involved in the occurrence of UC and CD in distinct manners.
Altered expression of CDX-2, PDX-1 and mucin core proteins in “Ulcer-associated cell lineage (UACL)” in Crohn’s disease
The ulcer-associated cell lineage (UACL) induced at the site of ileac chronic ulceration in Crohn’s disease showed histological differentiation simulating gastric pylori mucosa, and the down-regulation of CDX-2 and the up- regulation of PDX-1 could be an important mechanism in the induction of the UACL.
Expression of MUC2 and MUC3 mRNA in human normal, malignant, and inflammatory intestinal tissues.
Findings indicate that MUC2 is goblet cell-specific, whereas MUC3 is related to maturation of intestinal epithelial cells, which may be necessary for maintenance of normal epithelial cell function during inflammation.
Mucin-interacting proteins: from function to therapeutics.
Differential expression of mucosal trefoil factors and mucins in pediatric inflammatory bowel diseases
This dissertation aims to provide a history of web exceptionalism from 1989 to 2002, a period chosen in order to explore its roots as well as specific cases up to and including the year in which descriptions of “Web 2.0” began to circulate.
