High levels of pro-inflammatory cytokines are linked to inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). The transcription factor Caudal-related homeobox transcription factor 2 (CDX2) plays a crucial role in differentiation of intestinal epithelium and regulates IBD-susceptibility genes, including meprin 1A (MEP1A). The aim was to investigate the expression of CDX2 and MEP1A in colitis; to assess if they are regulated by tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF-α), and finally to reveal if CDX2 is involved in a TNF-α-induced down-regulation of MEP1A.
