Constitutive expression of inducible nitric oxide synthase in the normal human colonic epithelium

Publikation: Bidrag til tidsskriftTidsskriftartikelForskningfagfællebedømt

Inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) in the human colon is considered expressed only in inflammatory states such as ulcerative or collagenous colitis. As subtle iNOS labelling was previously observed in some colonic mucosal biopsies from a heterogeneous group of controls with non-inflamed bowel, we studied whether bowel preparation with bisacodyl or polyethylene glycol prior to sigmoidoscopy might induce iNOS expression.
