Elevated adhesive signaling promotes fibrosis. Protein phosphatase and tensin homologue (PTEN) dephosphorylates focal adhesion kinase and suppresses the activation of Akt and hence suppresses adhesive signaling. Loss of PTEN expression is associated with lung fibrosis, but whether PTEN expression by type I collagen-expressing cells controls lung fibrosis is(More)
