Early activation of pro-fibrotic WNT5A in sepsis-induced acute lung injury.
In Crit Care, 21 Nov 2014
We examined changes in protein levels of target genes involved in the Wnt pathway, including WNT5A, non-phospho (Ser33/37/Thr41) ß-catenin, matrix metalloproteinase-7 (MMP7), cyclin D1, and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) by Western blotting and immunohistochemistry. Finally, we validated the main gene targets of this pathway in experimental animals and human lungs.ResultsProtein levels of WNT5A, non-phospho (Ser33/37/Thr41) ß-catenin, total ß-catenin, MMP7, cyclin D1, and VEGF increased after endotoxin stimulation in BEAS-2B and MRC-5 cells.
CD151 in cancer progression and metastasis: a complex scenario.
Gdańsk, Poland. In Lab Invest, Jan 2014
The molecular mechanism of CD151 in cancer is based on its ability to organize distribution and function of interacting proteins, ie, laminin-binding integrins (α3β1, α6β1 and α6β4), receptors for growth factors (HGFR, EGFR and TGF-β1R) and matrix metalloproteinases (MMP-7, MMP-2 and MMP-9), which indicates its importance in disease development.
Matrix metalloproteinases: inflammatory regulators of cell behaviors in vascular formation and remodeling.
Hangzhou, China. In Mediators Inflamm, 2012
MMPs including MMP-1, MMP-2, MMP-3, MMP-7, MMP-8, MMP-9, MMP-12, and MT1-MMP, are stimulated and activated by various stimuli in vascular tissues.
