Enhanced proliferation of fibroblasts is a primary characteristic of lung fibrosis. Macrophage-secreted platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF) is a potent mitogen and chemoattractant for lung(More)
Differential expression of PDGF receptor alpha and beta subunits controls the response of mesenchymal cells to the three PDGF isoforms (AA, AB, and BB). Cultured rat lung myofibroblasts (RLMF)(More)
Fibroblasts are the primary proliferating cell type in pulmonary fibrosis. We previously showed that inorganic, fibrogenic particles alter the platelet-derived growth factor (PDGF) receptor system on(More)
