    OBJECTIVE: This study investigated the effects of oral supplementation of resistant starch (RS) on tumour cell and colonic mucosal cell kinetics and on gene expression in patients with colorectal cancer (CRC), and its potential role in colon cancer prevention. METHODS: 65 patients with CRC were...

    Dietary Ca2+ reduces colon cell proliferation and carcinogenesis, but it becomes ineffective or even tumorpromoting during carcinogenesis. It appears that Ca2+ and the colon cell CaSR together brake the massive cell production in normal colon crypts. The rapid proliferation of the...

    It is well established that part of starch is resistant to human amylases and escapes undigested to large bowel. This fraction of starch is resistant starch. Recent studies have shown that resistant starch may be a substrate for bacterial flora of the colon and serves as prebiotic. Short chain...

    Because colorectal epithelia are prone to malignant transformation, it is important to understand their normal regulation and then to identify differences between the normal cells and the transformed cells. We investigated the gene expression pattern along colonic crypts using a novel gene...

    A screen was recently developed to study the mobilization of starch in the unicellular green alga Chlamydomonas reinhardtii. This screen relies on starch synthesis accumulation during nitrogen starvation followed by the supply of nitrogen and the switch to darkness. Hence multiple regulatory...

    The intestinal epithelium is the most rapidly self-renewing tissue in adult mammals. It is currently believed that four to six crypt stem cells reside at the +4 position immediately above the Paneth cells in the small intestine; colon stem cells remain undefined. Lgr5...

    Objective: Colon cancer is a leading cause of cancer deaths in Western countries and is associated with diets high in red meat. Haem, the iron-porphyrin pigment of red meat, induces cytotoxicity of gut contents and damages the colon surface epithelium. Compensatory hyperproliferation leads to...

    We have previously demonstrated that the non-digestible fraction (NDF) from common cooked beans ( P. vulgaris L., cv Negro 8025) inhibits azoxymethane (AOM)-induced colon cancer and influences the expression of genes involved in the induction of apoptosis and cell cycle arrest through the action...

    The Reg IV gene has been documented in the colon, small intestine, stomach and pancreas of the human. Expression of the Reg IV in different cell types has been associated with regeneration, cell growth and cell survival, cell adhesion and resistance to apoptosis. It is unknown whether the Reg IV...
