Standard name ZHENG_IL22_SIGNALING_DN
Systematic name M1802
Brief description Genes down-regulated in ex-vivo colonic tissue after treatment with IL22 [GeneID=50616].
Full description or abstract Infections by attaching and effacing (A/E) bacterial pathogens, such as Escherichia coli O157:H7, pose a serious threat to public health. Using a mouse A/E pathogen, Citrobacter rodentium, we show that interleukin-22 (IL-22) has a crucial role in the early phase of host defense against C. rodentium. Infection of IL-22 knockout mice results in increased intestinal epithelial damage, systemic bacterial burden and mortality. We also find that IL-23 is required for the early induction of IL-22 during C. rodentium infection, and adaptive immunity is not essential for the protective role of IL-22 in this model. Instead, IL-22 is required for the direct induction of the Reg family of antimicrobial proteins, including RegIIIbeta and RegIIIgamma, in colonic epithelial cells. Exogenous mouse or human RegIIIgamma substantially improves survival of IL-22 knockout mice after C. rodentium infection. Together, our data identify a new innate immune function for IL-22 in regulating early defense mechanisms against A/E bacterial pathogens.

We need your help: Update on GSEA/MSigDB funding support

Last November we submitted a proposal to NCI's Information Technology for Cancer Research (ITCR) program for the continued funding of GSEA and MSigDB. Unfortunately, our proposal was not funded in this round, but we were encouraged to resubmit for the next one. This funding is critical for our continuing support and enhancement of the GSEA-MSigDB resource.

For our original submission many of you sent us emails of support, an important requirement for these grants. We now ask for your help again. We would greatly appreciate a short email message from you describing how the resource has been of value to your work and any concerns you may have about its continued availability.

Please send us your message of support to gsea-los@broadinstitute.org on or before Monday June 5, 2023.

Thanks in advance for your help and support.
The GSEA/MSigDB Team.
