'Broken' bacterial sensor doesn’t detect harmful bacteria in the digestive system..."Studies like this one give us a better understanding of key pathways and pathogenic mechanisms involved in Crohn's disease," he said. "Now that we are aware of the role of bacterial sensors in the disease, steps can be taken to develop a new treatment strategy."

The link only worked for me when I cut and pasted it.

There's a bold tag in the link.

Not sure if this will work:

Guess I don't have enough posts to post links.
Anyhooooo, a copy and paste of the url in Opera resulted in a bold tag, which gives me an illegal url.

dangdonkey it doesn't matter how many posts you've written it only works when you hit the reply to post button as I did, to highlight the link...but yet for some reason it doesn't take you to the article so you have to copy and paste it into your search engine to veiw the article.

Very similar to the Gene that Dr.Kathy Siminovich found on chromosome 5 that normally produces a protein that sits on the cell surface and controls movement of specific substances in and out of the cell. When altered (scratched) the gene produces a protein that functions improperly allowing toxins increased entry into the cell. The article about this was published in the CCFC back in the summer of 2004.
