miR-184 Targets TP63 to Block Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis by Inhibiting Proliferation and Epithelial–Mesenchymal Transition of Airway Epithelial Cells

Investigators showed abnormal upregulation of tumor protein p63 (TP63) and downregulation of miR-184 in idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis. Transforming growth factor beta 1 stimulation of BEAS-2B and A549 cell lines significantly increased the protein levels of Tp63, alpha-smooth muscle actin, and vimentin, but decreased EpCAM protein levels, and promoted viability of both BEAS-2B and A549 cell lines.

Heterogeneous Ozone Effects on the DNA Methylome of Bronchial Cells Observed in a Crossover Study

Researchers used a randomized crossover experiment to estimate the effects of ozone exposure on genome-wide DNA methylation of target bronchial epithelial cells, using 17 volunteers, each randomly exposed on two separated occasions to clean air or 0.3-ppm ozone for two hours.

Bone Marrow Mesenchymal Stem Cells-Derived Exosomal MicroRNA-193a Reduces Cisplatin Resistance of Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer Cells via Targeting LRRC1

A549 and H1299 cell lines were screened out and their parent cells and drug-resistant cells were co-cultured with human bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells-derived exosomes that had been transfected with miR-193a mimic or si-LRRC1 to detect the colony formation, migration, apoptosis, invasion and proliferation of non-small cell lung cancer cells.

FGFR1 Is Critical for Rbl2 Loss-Driven Tumor Development and Requires PLCG1 Activation for Continued Growth of Small Cell Lung Cancer

Researchers showed that increased fibroblast growth factor receptor 1 (FGFR1) promoted tumorigenic progression in precancerous neuroendocrine cells and is required for small cell lung cancer development in vivo.

Expression and Role of p16 and GLUT1 in Malignant Diseases and Lung Cancer: A Review

Non‐small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is the leading cause of cancer death and in most cases it is often diagnosed at an advanced stage. Many genetic and microenvironmental factors are able to modify the cell cycle inducing carcinogenesis and tumor growth.
