Glucagon like Peptide-2 for Intestinal Stem Cell and Paneth Cell Repair during Graft-Versus-Host Disease in Mice and Humans

Investigators found that L-cells were a target of acute graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) and that glucagon-like-peptide-2-based treatment of acute GVHD restored intestinal homeostasis via an increase of intestinal stem cells and paneth cells without impairing graft-versus-leukemia effects.

Latexin Deficiency in Mice Up-Regulates Inflammation and Aggravates Colitis through hECTD1/Rps3/Nf-κB Pathway

Ectopic expression of Latexin led to IκBα accumulation in intestinal epithelial cells, however, latexin knockdown enhanced the interaction of HECTD1 and Rps3, contributing to the ubiquitination degradation of IκBα, and subsequently enhanced inflammatory response.
