Stat6 dependent goblet cell hyperplasia during intestinal nematode infection
To identify the role of signal transducer and activator of transcription factor 6 (Stat6) in the development of intestinal goblet cell hyperplasia during nematode infection, we compared the number of goblet cells in Stat6 deficient (Stat6 -/-) mice with that generated in wild-type (Stat6 +/+) mice in Trichinella spiralis infection. The number of goblet cells significantly increased with infection in wild-type mice. However, Stat6 -/- failed to generate infection-induced goblet cell hyperplasia...[Show more]
