BACKGROUND Limited information is available regarding mechanisms by which miRNAs contribute to pulmonary carcinogenesis. The present study was undertaken to examine expression and function of miRNAs induced by cigarette smoke condensate (CSC) in normal human respiratory epithelia and lung cancer cells. METHODOLOGY Micro-array and quantitative RT-PCR (qRT… CONTINUE READING
