Integrins are protein receptors that bind to extracellular matrix proteins, and a2b1 and a5b1 are two integrins that mediate mammary epithelial cell
adhesion and migration on collagen and fibronectin, respectively.
The team then used the same approach in four types of cancer--cervical, breast, prostate, and squamous cell--all epithelial cell
The researchers compared osteopontin levels in a benchmark healthy ovarian epithelial cell
culture with those of 4 other healthy ovarian epithelial cell
cultures, 10 serous-type ovarian epithelial cancer cell lines, 2 mucinous-type ovarian cancer cell lines, and 2 clear cell-type ovarian cancer cell lines.
14,38] Retinoic acids are known to inhibit EBV replication in vitro and induce epithelial cell
Colorectal epithelial cell
proliferation is thought to be a biomarker of colon cancer risk.
In vivo and in vitro experiments showed that interfering with Eya1 phosphatase function resulted in defective epithelial cell
polarity and mitotic spindle orientation; disrupted Numb, a cell fate determinant; and inactivated Notch signaling, which is involved in cell segregation and division, thereby establishing Eya1 as an important regulator in the development of embryonic lung stem cells.
sup] The phenomenon of epithelial cell
transdifferentiation has become the focus of researchers as it is closely related to the pathogenesis of many human diseases such as cardiac fibrosis and tumors.
In addition, alternative strategies using immortalized or tumor AECII cell lines also fail to fully differentiate into alveolar epithelial cell
phenotypes that are seen in vivo (5).
For example, TFF3 participates in epithelial cell
repair, induces intestinal epithelial cell
migration via a transforming growth factor [beta] (TGF[beta])-independent pathway (Dignass et al.
Insufficient biocompatibility of intraocular lens materials may result in different clinical entities such as anterior capsule opacification, posterior capsule opacification, and lens epithelial cell
The researchers knew they faced a major challenge: sorting and separating "sticky" epithelial cell
progenitors without destroying them.
