Lung-resident eosinophils represent a distinct regulatory eosinophil subset.
Increases in eosinophil numbers are associated with infection and allergic diseases, including asthma, but there is also evidence that eosinophils contribute to homeostatic immune processes. In mice,Expand

CXCR2 Promotes Ovarian Cancer Growth through Dysregulated Cell Cycle, Diminished Apoptosis, and Enhanced Angiogenesis
Purpose: Chemokine receptor CXCR2 is associated with malignancy in several cancer models; however, the mechanisms involved in CXCR2-mediated tumor growth remain elusive. Here, we investigated theExpand

Endostatin induces autophagy in endothelial cells by modulating Beclin 1 and β-catenin levels
Endostatin is a well‐characterized endogenous inhibitor of angiogenesis that affects cell proliferation and migration by inhibiting integrin and Wnt‐mediated signalling pathways. Here, we show thatExpand
