Dietary heme stimulates epithelial cell turnover by downregulating feedback inhibitors of proliferation in murine colon (part 1)

ABSTRACT: The risk for colon cancer is associated with nutrition, especially with diets high in red meat. Red meat contains the iron porphyrin pigment heme, which induces cytotoxicity of the colon contents and epithelial hyperproliferation. Using a mouse model, we showed that heme caused damage to the colonic surface epithelium and induced compensatory hyperproliferation. Expression levels of heme- and stress-related genes show that heme affects surface cells and not directly crypt cells. Therefore, injured surface cells should signal to crypt TA cells to induce compensatory hyperproliferation. Surface-specific downregulated inhibitors of proliferation were Wnt inhibitory factor 1, Indian Hedgehog, Bone morphogenic protein 2 and possibly Interleukin-15. Heme also upregulated Amphiregulin, Epiregulin and Cyclooxygenase-2 mRNA in the surface cells, however, their protein/metabolite levels were not increased as heme induced surface-specific translation repression by increasing 4E-BP1. Therefore, we conclude that heme induced colonic hyperproliferation and hyperplasia by repressing feedback inhibition of proliferation. Overall design: C57BL/6 mice received a Westernized diet with or without heme (the polyporphyrin pigment of red meat). Mice received control or heme diet for 14 days. After 14 days, mice were sacrificed and colons were taken out. Swiss rolls were made from the middle 2 cm of the colon. These rolls were used for LCM, and surface cells and crypts cells were separately isolated. RNA was isolated from surface and crypt cells and subjected to gene expression profiling (n=4 control mice and n=3 heme-fed mice).
