P135 MAJOR GENE REGULATORS AFFECTED IN COLON AND BLOOD OF DEXTRAN SODIUM SULFATE ACUTE COLITIS MURINE MODEL




Dextran sulfate sodium (DSS) ulcerative colitis (UC) murine models have long been used for in vivo studies. DSS is a negatively charged polysaccharide with colitogenic properties. Although the mechanisms by which DSS induces intestinal inflammation are not fully understood, there are several good reasons why the DSS chemical colitis model for investigating the immunopathogenesis mechanism of UC is widely used. These include strong phenotypic clinical manifestations which emulate numerous clinical and histopathological features of human UC, ease of use, low mortality rate and high reproducibility.
