Elk-1 transcriptionally regulates ZC3H4 expression to promote silica-induced epithelial-mesenchymal transition.

Rong Jiang, Qianqian Gao, Mingxia Chen, Tingting Yu,

The epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) process is a key priming activity of fibroblasts in pulmonary fibrosis during silicosis. Ets-like protein-1 (Elk-1) is a critical modulator that promotes functional changes in cells, and the effects are mediated by oxidative stress (OS). However, whether ELK-1 is involved in EMT of silicosis remains unclear. ... Read more >>

Overexpression of endogenous lipoic acid synthase attenuates pulmonary fibrosis induced by crystalline silica in mice.

Yingzheng Zhao, Guangcui Xu, Haibin Li, Meiyu Chang, Yi Guan, Yuchun Li, Weidong Wu, Sanqiao Yao,

Oxidative stress and inflammatory processes are proposed to mediate the development of silicosis. However, antioxidant therapy has not produced consistent results during the treatment of silicosis. α-Lipoic acid synthesized by lipoic acid synthase is a powerful anti-oxidant and helps protect mitochondria. Thus far, the effect of endogenous α-Lipoic acid on ... Read more >>
