Abstract

We studied the role of NF-kappaB in acute inflammation caused by gut ischemia-reperfusion through selective ablation of IkappaB kinase (IKK)-beta, the catalytic subunit of IKK that is essential for NF-kappaB activation. Ablation of IKK-beta in enterocytes prevented the systemic inflammatory response, which culminates in multiple organ dysfunction syndrome (MODS) that is normally triggered by gut ischemia-reperfusion. IKK-beta removal from enterocytes, however, also resulted in severe apoptotic damage to the reperfused intestinal mucosa. These results show the dual function of the NF-kappaB system, which is responsible for both tissue protection and systemic inflammation, and underscore the caution that should be exerted in using NF-kappaB and IKK inhibitors.
