OBJECTIVE: To investigate the role of Runx3 protein and TGF-β(1) in the pathogenesis of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), as well as the correlation of these two proteins.
METHODS: Colonic tissue was collected from patients with IBS and normal persons. The colonic expression of Runx3 protein and TGF-β(1) was detected with immunohistochemistry method. Semi-quantitative analysis was used to evaluate the staining degree of these two proteins.
RESULTS: Compared with their counterparts, patients with IBS did not show any changes in the colonic expression of Runx3 protein and TGF-β(1) (P>0.05). Interestingly, there was a significant correlation between Runx3 protein and TGF-β(1) in patients with IBS(P<0.05).
CONCLUSIONS: The role of Runx3 protein and TGF-β(1) in the pathogenesis of IBS remains to be further studied.
