Background: Fibrosis is a common complication of Crohn's disease (CD) in which macrophages play a central role. Epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) and the WNT pathway have been associated with fibrosis. We aim to analyse the relevance of the tissue microenvironment in macrophage phenotype and the EMT process. Methods: Intestinal surgical re...

Full-text available
Intestinal epithelial cells (IECs) constitute a defensive physical barrier in mucosal tissues and their disruption is involved in the etiopathogenesis of several inflammatory pathologies, such as Ulcerative Colitis (UC). Recently, the succinate receptor SUCNR1 was associated with the activation of inflammatory pathways in several cell types, but li...
Article
Background Macrophages contribute to fibrosis by releasing different mediators and the pattern of secretion may vary depending on the surrounding environment. We previously described that the mRNA expression of IFNγ was significantly higher in intestinal samples from CD patients. Methods The aim of the present study is to analyze the role of IFNγ-...
Article
Background Crohn′s disease (CD) is often complicated by the appearance of intestinal stenosis (B2 behaviour) or fistulas (B3 behaviour), and the factors determining the pattern of disease and the etiology of these lesions, both associated with fibrosis and requiring surgery, are poorly defined. Our aim has been to detect transcriptomic alterations...
Article
Background Metabolomics is a recent technique that has bounced into Inflammatory Bowel Diseases (IBD) due to its capacity to elucidate specific metabolites involved in the pathology and changes in the metabolomic profile have been detected in urine, blood or feces from UC patients. G-protein coupled receptors (GPCRs) have been recently identified a...
Article
Background Fibrosis is a complication commonly present in Crohn’s disease (CD) patients with a structuring (B2) or penetrating (B3) phenotype, with no effective treatment. This process is characterized by a disequilibrium between the production and degradation of the extracellular matrix (ECM), mainly regulated by myofibroblasts. We aim to analyse...
Article
Background Fibrosis constitute the main complications associated to Crohn’s disease (CD). Notch signalling has been implicated in lung, kidney, liver and cardiac fibrosis. Macrophages contribute to fibrosis through the release of different mediators and the pattern of secretion may vary according to their microenvironment. The aim of the present st...
Article
Background Ulcerative colitis (UC) is characterized by a diffuse, continuous, and chronic inflammation of mucosa and submucosa layers in the colon1. Inflammasome complex is involved in the intestinal homeostasis regulation, but its role in UC has not been established yet. We have recently reported that SUCNR1 mediates intestinal inflammation and fi...
Article
Background Crohn’s disease (CD) is a chronic inflammatory disorder of the gastrointestinal tract whose etiology is unknown. CD is associated with complications such as fibrosis or fistula, which cannot be pharmacologically reversed, requiring repeated surgery. Although a profibrotic effect of the P2X7 receptor has been described in some scenarios s...
Article
Background The Krebs cycle metabolite succinate contributes to inflammatory conditions like arthritis and colitis by activating its receptor SUCNR1. We aimed to analyze whether the succinate-SUCNR1 pathway contributes to the leukocyte-endothelial cell interactions that initiate the inflammatory response. Methods We evaluated leukocyte rolling and...
Article
Background Macrophages contribute to fibrosis by releasing different mediators and the pattern of secretion may vary depending on the surrounding environment. We previously described that the mRNA expression of IFNγ was significantly higher in intestinal samples from CD patients. The aim of the present study is to analyze the role of IFNγ-treated m...
Article
Background Crohn’s Disease (CD) patients often develop stenotic complications as immunomodulatory treatments do not prevent the fibrogenic response in the affected tissues, where a dysregulated activation of stromal cells provokes an excessive deposition of extracellular matrix (ECM). Recent evidences support the notion that local cells can sense t...
Article
Background Vitamin D receptor (VDR) is a member of the nuclear receptor family of transcription factors that plays an immunomodulatory role in the gastrointestinal tract through binding Vitamin D. Single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in the VDR gene have been related to inflammatory bowel disease. Indeed, Crohn′s disease (CD) patients carrying th...
Article
Full-text available
The pathogenesis of Crohn’s disease-associated fibrostenosis and fistulas imply the epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EMT) process. As succinate and its receptor (SUCNR1) are involved in intestinal inflammation and fibrosis, we investigated their relevance in EMT and Crohn’s disease (CD) fistulas. Succinate levels and SUCNR1-expression were ana...
Article
Background Intestinal fistula is a common complication in CD patients whose aetiology is still not well-characterised. It is associated with an exacerbated inflammation and epithelial-to-mesenchymal transition (EMT), a process which allows a switch from epithelial towards a fibrotic behaviour. We have recently reported that SUCNR1 mediates intestin...
Article
Background Macrophages contribute to fibrosis through the release of different mediators and the pattern of secretion may vary according to their phenotype. Methods The aim of the present study is to analyse the pattern of expression of macrophages, of EMT-related genes and cytokines in surgical resections from Crohn’s disease (CD, n = 43) patient...
Article
Background Fibrosis is a common complication in Crohn’s disease (CD) patients and fibroblasts play an important role in the fibrogenic process. Low vitamin D (VD) levels and a defective VD-signalling pathway have been reported in CD. VD signals through both vitamin D receptor (VDR) and protein disulfide-isomerase A3 (PDIA3) and we have previously d...

Large-scale colony losses among managed Western honey bees have become a serious threat to the beekeeping industry in the last decade. Multiple factors contribute to these losses, but the impact of Varroa destructor parasitism is by far the most important, along with the contribution of some pathogenic viruses vectored by the mite. So far, more tha...

Article
Background Macrophages contribute to fibrosis through the release of different mediators and the pattern of secretion may vary according to their phenotype. The expression of WNT ligands has been related with the macrophage phenotype and strong evidence identifies the WNT signalling pathway as an emerging modulator of fibrosis. Methods The aim of...
Article
Background Fibrosis and fistula development constitute the main complications associated to Crohn’s disease. Notch signalling has been implicated in lung, kidney, liver, and cardiac fibrosis and in various disease conditions such as scleroderma. We aim to analyse here the pattern of NOTCH ligands, receptors, and effectors expression in surgical res...

NSAIDs inhibit tumorigenesis in gastrointestinal tissues and have been proposed as coadjuvant agents to chemotherapy. The ability of cancer epithelial cells to adapt to the tumour environment and to resist cytotoxic agents seems to depend on rescue mechanisms such as autophagy. In the present study we aimed to determine whether an NSAID with sensit...
