Retinoids have demonstrated activity in the prevention of second primary tumors in patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). They also contribute to the normal growth and differentiation of human bronchial epithelial (HBE) cells. Because retinoids mediate their actions through retinoid nuclear receptors (RARs and RXRs), aberrant signaling through(More)
In this study, we investigated the biochemical basis for the induction of sialomucin production in HT-29 LMM human colon carcinoma cells. Previous studies showed that conditioned medium from organ cultures of normal human colonic connective tissues (NCCM) stimulated the biosynthesis of high molecular weight sialoglycoproteins (M(r) 740,000 and 450,000) by(More)
Retinoids, including retinol and retinoic acid derivatives, maintain the normal growth and differentiation of human bronchial epithelial cells. The signaling pathways through which retinoids mediate these effects have not been defined. Insulin-like growth factor binding protein-3 (IGFBP-3) and the transforming growth factor-beta (TGF-beta) gene family(More)
Retinoids, including retinol and retinoic acid derivatives, maintain the normal growth and differentiation of human bronchial epithelial (HBE) cells and are under investigation as agents for lung cancer prevention. In this study, we examined the biologic effects of retinoids on normal HBE cells and the molecular mechanisms of retinoid actions. At a dose of(More)
