By: J. Gookin*, S. Chiang*, J. Allen*, M. Armstrong*, S. Stauffer*, C. Finnegan, M. Murtaugh

author keywords: nitric oxide; barrier function; diarrhea; cryptosporidiosis
MeSH headings : Animals; Animals, Newborn; Body Weight; Chlorides / metabolism; Cryptosporidiosis / enzymology; Cryptosporidiosis / metabolism; Cryptosporidium parvum / immunology; Epithelial Cells / metabolism; Gene Expression Regulation, Enzymologic; Ileum / cytology; Ileum / metabolism; Ileum / ultrastructure; Intestinal Mucosa / cytology; Intestinal Mucosa / metabolism; Intestinal Mucosa / pathology; NF-kappa B / metabolism; Nitric Oxide Synthase Type II / genetics; Nitric Oxide Synthase Type II / metabolism; Swine; Swine Diseases / enzymology; Swine Diseases / metabolism; Swine Diseases / parasitology
TL;DR: It is shown that mucosal expression of inducible nitric oxide (NO) synthase (iNOS) is increased in infected piglets and that inhibition of iNOS in vitro has no short-term effect on barrier function, suggesting that induction of i NOS represents a nonspecific response of the epithelium that mediates enterocyte defense against C. parvum infection.

Local peroxynitrite formation contributes to early control of Cryptosporidium parvum infection

INFECTION AND IMMUNITY, 73(7), 3929–3936.

By: J. Gookin n, J. Allen n, S. Chiang n, L. Duckett n & M. Armstrong n

MeSH headings : Animals; Cryptosporidiosis / immunology; Cryptosporidium parvum; Female; Immunohistochemistry; Lipid Peroxidation; Nitric Oxide Synthase / analysis; Nitric Oxide Synthase Type II; Peroxynitrous Acid / biosynthesis; Swine; Tyrosine / metabolism
TL;DR: The present results are the first to demonstrate an in vivo role for peroxynitrite formation in acute mucosal defense against a noninvasive intestinal epithelial pathogen. (via Semantic Scholar)
