[Ecology]-Gene that protects against inflammatory bowel disease identified

#1
Gene that protects against inflammatory bowel disease identified

Researchers have identified a gene that protects the gut from inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). The mouse study found a mutation in the Gatm gene and used CRISPR/Cas9 gene-editing technology to confirm this link. The Gatm gene is required for the rapid replenishment of the intestinal mucosal barrier that guards the intestinal wall against inflammation caused by bacteria in the digestive tract, researchers determined.
