NFAT Signaling in Human Mesenchymal Stromal Cells Affects Extracellular Matrix Remodeling and Anti-Fungal Immune Responses

RNA-sequencing analysis of zymosan-treated MSCs showed that calcineurin-NFAT inhibition affects extracellular matrix genes, but not cytokine expression that is under the control of the NF-κB pathway.

Tumor Suppressive Role of miR-342-5p in Human Chondrosarcoma Cells and 3D Organoids

The authors carried out high-throughput functional screening using impedancemetry, and identified five miRNAs with potential antiproliferative or chemosensitive effects on SW1353 chondrosarcoma cells.
