AIM: To study differences in the visceral sensitivity of the colonic mucosa between patients with diarrhea-predominant irritable bowel syndrome IBS-D and those with ulcerative colitis UC in remission and to relate these differences with changes in the 5-hydroxytryptophan 5-HT signaling pathway. The protein expression of TPH1 was analyzed by Western blot and immunohistochemistry. With respect to rectal visceral sensitivity, the UC remission and IBS-D groups showed a decrease in the initial perception threshold, defecating threshold and pain threshold. However, these groups exhibited significantly increased anorectal relaxation pressure. However, the pain threshold and 5-HT7R expression in the colonic mucosa were significantly different between these groups.
