- Bronchial epithelial compression regulates epidermal growth factor receptor family ligand expression in an autocrine mannerEric K Chu
Department of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine, Brigham and Women s Hospital, 75 Francis Street, Boston, MA 02115, USA
Am J Respir Cell Mol Biol 32:373-80. 2005..The response of all three EGFR ligands persisted long after the mechanical stimulus was removed. Taken together, these data suggest the possibility of a mechanically activated EGFR autocrine feedback loop involving selected EGFR ligands...
- Induction of the plasminogen activator system by mechanical stimulation of human bronchial epithelial cellsEric K Chu
Brigham and Women s Hospital, Department of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine, Harvard School of Public Health, Physiology Program and Children s Hospital Informatics Program, Boston, Massachusetts 02115, USA
Am J Respir Cell Mol Biol 35:628-38. 2006..Together these observations suggest an integrated response of airway epithelial cells to mechanical stimulation, acting through the plasminogen-activating system to modify the airway microenvironment...
