[Influence of pyrrolidine dithiocarbamate (PDTC) on expression of transforming growth factor beta(1), matrix metalloproteinase-2 and tissue inhibitor-1 of metalloproteinase in rats with pulmonary damage induced by paraquat].

Abstract

OBJECTIVE To investigate the influence of pyrrolidine dithiocarbamate (PDTC) on the expression of transforming growth factor beta(1) (TGF-beta(1)), matrix metalloproteinase-2 (MMP-2) and tissue inhibitor-1 of metalloproteinase (TIMP-1) in rats with pulmonary damage induced by paraquat (PQ). METHODS Fifty-four healthy male SD rats were randomly assigned… (More)
