cAMP-dependent protein kinase is essential for hypoxia-mediated epithelial-mesenchymal transition, migration, and invasion in lung cancer cells
Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer-related death worldwide. Hypoxia is known to increase cancer cell migration and invasion. We have previously reported that hypoxia induces epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) ...
Knockdown of von Hippel-Lindau Protein decreases lung cancer cell proliferation and colonization
Although von Hippel-Lindau protein (pVHL) is known as a tumor suppressor in kidney and other organs, it remains unclear whether pVHL plays a role in lung cancer development. We investigated the role of pVHL in lung cancer ...
Alpha-Enolase Regulates the Malignant Phenotype of Pulmonary Artery Smooth Muscle Cells via the AMPK-Akt pathway
(Nature Research, 2018-09-21)
The molecular mechanisms underlying the metabolic shift toward increased glycolysis observed in pulmonary artery smooth muscle cells (PASMC) during the pathogenesis of pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) are not fully ...
Smooth muscle cell-specific FoxM1 controls hypoxia-induced pulmonary hypertension
Rationale: Forkhead box M1 (FoxM1) is a transcription factor that promotes cell proliferation by regulating a broad spectrum of genes that participate in cell cycle regulation, such as Cyclin B, CDC25B, and Aurora B Kinase. ...
PAI-1 is a novel component of the miR-17~92 signaling that regulates pulmonary artery smooth muscle cell phenotypes
(American Physiological Society, 2018-08-01)
We have previously reported that miR-17~92 is critically involved in the pathogenesis of pulmonary hypertension (PH). We also identified two novel mR-17/20a direct targets PDLIM5 and PHD2 and elucidated the signaling ...
