Colon Immune Atlas

The colon, as a barrier tissue, represents a unique immune environment where immune cells display tolerance toward adiverse community of microbes, which are collectively known as the microbiome.

Colon Schematic Thepublished study  revealed that not only were there differences between the immune cells in different parts of the colon, but that the microbiome also subtly changed, with a broader range of bacteria further down the colon.

Image description Single cell transcriptomes for 41,650 cells isolated from the caeacum, transverse colon and sigmoid colon of 5 individuals.
