SCIENTISTS TO CREATE A “GUT CELL ATLAS” WITH FUNDING FROM THE HELMSLEY CHARITABLE TRUST

October 25, 2019
Posted in News, Funding, Research

“The Gut Cell Atlas will help us uncover what happens in the gut in health and disease and will also serve as a model for building other comprehensive organ system atlases.” A VUMC team led by Dr. Keith Wilson and research groups from two other universities will procure human tissue from both healthy individuals and those with Crohn’s disease, and gather data for gene and protein expression and cellular localization. Computational biologists will then analyze the data.

Wilson and his colleagues began using cell cultures to explore the enzymatic pathways that produce nitric oxide and alternative products. Their studies led them to molecules called polyamines, which are produced by the enzyme ornithine decarboxylase (ODC) and which have been shown to be both detrimental and beneficial to cells, depending on the context.
