Division of Respiratory Medicine, Department of Medicine, Karolinska Institutet, Karolinska University Hospital Solna, 171 76 Stockholm, Sweden
Respir Res 7:18. 2006..We studied if HBSMC may be a source of NGF, BDNF and NT-3, and if so, how inflammatory cytokines may influence their production...
- Effects of neurotrophins on human bronchial smooth muscle cell migration and matrix metalloproteinase-9 secretionCharlotta Dagnell
Department of Medicine Solna, Division of Respiratory Medicine, Karolinska Institutet and Karolinska University Hospital, Stockholm, Sweden
Transl Res 150:303-10. 2007..BDNF and NT-3, but not NGF, stimulated HBSMC migration as evaluated by Boyden chamber. Taken together, our data indicate that the neurotrophins may stimulate events important for airway remodeling...
