Experimental Protocol

Splenocytes from BALB/c female mice were activated with Concanavalin A (4 μg/mL), and recombinant human IL-2 (10 ng/mL, R&D systems) for 3 days. CD4+ T cells were isolated by MACS separation systems, and then 2 x105 activated CD4+ T cells were intravenously injected into female SCID mice (day 0). At day 17, diarrhea score for stool consistency was graded and equally divided into 5 groups as follows: vehicle control, enteric MEK inhibitor microparticles (MPs) at 0.3 mg/kg and at 1 mg/kg, isotype antibody (Isotype mAb) and anti-TNFa antibody (Anti-TNFa mAb). Enteric MEK inhibitor MPs were orally administered once a day from day 17 to day 27. Isotype mAb and anti-TNFa mAb were intraperitoneally injected every 4 days from day 17 at 0.1 mg/mouse. Total RNA from individual cohorts were extracted from the distal part of the colon at day 28, and whole transcriptome sequencing was performed on the Ion Torrent platform. MEK inhibitor (compound 33 in Bioorg. Med. Chem. Lett. 22 (2012) 2411 2414))
