DRA (downregulated in adenoma, Slc26a3) is a member of the SLC26 family of anion transporters, which is mutated in congenital chloride diarrhoea (CLD). Besides Cl(-) -rich diarrhoea, CLD patients also have a higher than average incidence of intestinal inflammation. In a search for potential explanations for this clinical finding, we investigated colonic electrolyte transport, the mucus layer, and susceptibility against dextran sodium sulphate (DSS)-induced colitis in Slc26a3(-/-) mice.
