Researchers Identify Protein Involved in IBD Development
Researchers have found a protein called CCDC88B that is present at high levels in the colons of patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). They suggest that this protein plays a crucial role in bringing disease-causing inflammatory cells into the colon (large intestine) during the development of IBD. The study titled, “CCDC88B is required for pathogenesis of inflammatory bowel disease,” was published in the journal Nature Communications. IBD is thought to develop due to the entry of the body’s white blood cells into the colon, causing inflammation that results in the damage seen in IBD. The study set out to find the exact biological mechanism that allow
