Supplementary Material

Supplementary Figure S1: H&E staining of paraffin embedded colons from rag/ mice 45 days post cell transfer: i) WT CD45RB+ donor, ii) CD73/ CD45RB+ donor, iii) WT CD45RB+ & WT CD25+ donors, iv) CD73/ CD45RB+ and CD73/ CD25+ donors.

Supplementary Figure S2: Colons were isolated from WT and CD73/ mice at different time points during treatment with 3% DSS in drinking water or after DSS removal. Equal amounts of protein were loaded for each sample/group. Expression level of the p65 subunit of NF-kappa-B was analyzed by Western blot using specific mAb (one of two experiments).

Supplementary Figure S3: Colons from CD73/ or WT mice with IBD (day 8 of IBD) were analyzed for mRNA expression of all mouse TLRs (TLR1-11) by real-time PCR. Data is presented as fold increase in expression level compared to WT.
