Coriolus versicolor Suppresses Inflammatory Bowel Disease by Inhibiting the Expression of STAT1 and STAT6 Associated with IFN-╬│ and IL-4 Expression.
Summary of "Coriolus versicolor Suppresses Inflammatory Bowel Disease by Inhibiting the Expression of STAT1 and STAT6 Associated with IFN-╬│ and IL-4 Expression."
To investigate the effects of Coriolus versicolor extract (CVE) on inflÔÇëammatory bowel disease (IBD), ulcerative colitis was induced in male BALb/c mice by administering drinking water containing dextran-sulfate sodium (DSS). The mice were divided into the following four experimental groups: control, DSS-induced colitis, CVE treatment and CVE treatment + DSS-induced colitis. Mice receiving DSS treatment developed clinical and macroscopic signs of ulcerative colitis. However, treatment with CVE relieved the symptoms of IBD, including the decrease in body and organ weight. The levels of serum, spleen and mesenteric lymph node IgE in the CVE-treated groups was lower compared with the untreated groups. The antiinflÔÇëammatory response upon CVE treatment correlated with the reduced expression of TNF-╬▒, IL-1╬▓ and IL-6. Also, there was a significant reduction in the expression of STAT1 and STAT6 molecules, thereby leading to lower IFN-╬│ and IL-4 expression. Therefore, the antiinflÔÇëammatory effects of Coriolus versicolor can be explained by its ability to inhibit certain proinflammatory cytokines. Copyright ┬ę 2011 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
An anti-inflammatory agent, structurally related to the SALICYLATES, which is active in INFLAMMATORY BOWEL DISEASE. It is considered to be the active moiety of SULPHASALAZINE. (From Martindale, The Extra Pharmacopoeia, 30th ed)
Inflammatory Bowel Diseases
Chronic, non-specific inflammation of the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT. Etiology may be genetic or environmental. This term includes CROHN DISEASE and ULCERATIVE COLITIS.
Leukocyte L1 Antigen Complex
A member of the S-100 protein family that is present at high levels in the blood and interstitial fluid in several infectious, inflammatory, and malignant disorders, including rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, and cystic fibrosis. It is a complex of a light chain (CALGRANULIN A) and a heavy chain (CALGRANULIN B). L1 binds calcium through an EF-hand motif, and has been shown to possess antimicrobial activity.
