Kovler ML, Gonzalez Salazar AJ, Fulton WB, Lu P, Yamaguchi Y, Zhou Q, Sampah M, Ishiyama A, Prindle T Jr, Wang S, Jia H, Wipf P, Sodhi CP, Hackam DJ (2021) Toll-like receptor 4-mediated enteric glia loss is critical for the development of necrotizing enterocolitis. Sci Transl Med 13(612):eabg3459. doi: 10.1126/scitranslmed.abg3459
Objective: Hypothesized that enteric glia loss in the premature intestine could lead to dysmotility, exaggerated Toll-like receptor 4 (TLR4) signaling and necrotizing enterocolitis (NEC) development.
Summary: TLR4-induced enteric glia loss leads to experimental NEC through Brain Derived Neurotrophic Factor (BDNF) loss, which can be treated with compound ‘J11.’
