Autophagy is known as an important regulatory mediator for cell survival or death and its important role in cancer. Pemetrexed (PTX) has been used in chemotherapy for lung cancer. However, the underlying molecular mechanisms have not been fully clarified. To investigate the role of autophagy induced by PTX in A549 cells, we performed MTT assay, acridine(More)
Interferons (IFNs) play important roles in tumor pathogenesis by controlling apoptosis and through cellular anti-proliferative and differentiation activities. Interferon inducible transmembrane protein (IFITM) family genes were first discovered in interferon-treated neuroblastoma cells. IFITM3 is a member of the IFITM family, and has been described as a key(More)
