Sammanfattning : The mucus layer covering the colonic epithelium creates a crucial first line of defense against the gut residing bacteria. Several lines of evidence suggest that a functional mucus layer is essential for health. For example, it is. suggested that ulcerative colitis is correlated with mucus layer defects. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : The intestine is covered by mucus that is the first line of defence of the epithelium. The main structural component of the intestinal mucus is the MUC2 mucin. This is a large glycoprotein with two long and heavily O-glycosylated mucin domains. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : The mammalian intestine, especially the large intestine, harbors complex societies of beneficial bacteria coexisting with the host. This is a mutualistic relationship, where the host provides nutrients and a favorable environment while the bacteria in return ferment indigestible polysaccharides to short chain fatty acids. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Anion and mucus secretions have traditionally been looked upon as two separate parts of the epithelial defense system. The importance of anion secretion has been attributed to its role in creating the driving force for fluid secretion that flushes the epithelium from bacteria, while mucus secretion ensures protection via the mucus layer that forms a physical barrier between the bacteria and the epithelium.

5. Citrobacter rodentium and Escherichia coli interactions with mucus producing colonic epithelical cells
Sammanfattning : The epithelial cells together with the mucus layer protect the host from noxious luminal substances and pathogenic invasion. Pathogens have evolved numerous strategies to circumvent these barriers and mount infection. C. rodentium is a murine model for the attaching and effacing intestinal E. LÄS MER
