1) There is a hyperkeratosis of the upper epithelial layer that represents an altered pattern of keratin expression in the squamous epithelial cells.
Our previous study showed that VitC maintained glycogen synthase kinase-3[sz]-S9 activity, attenuated the suppression of E-cadherin caused by hypoxia, and ultimately decreased DC-SIGN expression in rat intestine epithelium cells induced by HS;[sup][15] hence, we hypothesized that VitC could also suppress the DC-SIGN expression in renal tubular epithelial cells.
Together with the aforementioned morphological data, this result suggested that A549 cells might partially maintain alveolar epithelial cell properties in ALI state.
Upon endotoxin damage in epithelial cells, the TFF3 signaling pathway is activated and generates TFF3 protein to protect against mucosal epithelial cell injury and promote mucosal repair.
It was reported that a hydrophobic lens with anti-TGF-[beta]2 surface modification both decreased lens epithelial cell ongrowth and increased lens surface hydrophilicity in experimental conditions.
All epithelial cells along our airways - from our noses to the tiny bronchioles deep in our lungs - need to function properly to trap and dispatch particles and pathogens so we don't get sick.
24-27) In order to determine whether MTP are activators of the epithelial cell cytokine response, we compared the in vitro cytokine profiles of A549 cells infected with the wild-type, [DELTA]mtp mutant, and complemented strains, using a multiplex assay.
