Core Tip Results of this study show that visceral hypersensitivity results in a decrease in the plasma and colon tissue levels of epidermal growth factor (EGF). Moreover, the EGF levels were positively correlated with serotonin transporter (SERT) levels. SERT gene expression and protein activity were upregulated in a dose- and time-dependent manner by EGF, and an inhibitor of the EGF receptor kinase blocked SERT gene expression and activity in an intestinal epithelial cell line. The data suggest that decreased EGF levels may contribute to the formation of visceral hypersensitivity through downregulation of SERT activity.
