Molecular analysis of carcinogen-induced rodent lung tumors: Involvement of microRNA expression and Krαs or Egfr mutations.


Genetic and epigenetic alterations play a key role in lung carcinogenesis, and a high frequency of KRAS and epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) mutations have been observed in human lung cancers. Recent evidence indicates that the expression of specific microRNAs (miRNAs) may be involved. In rodent lung carcinogenesis models, Kras mutations are… (More)
