Role of poly(ADP-ribosyl)ation in a ‘two-hit’ model of hypoxia and oxidative stress in human A549 epithelial cells in vitro

A preceding hypoxic insult can sensitize the cells or the organism to a subsequent, second insult. The aim of the present study was to investigate the molecular mechanism of this phenomenon (often termed 'two-hit' injury paradigm), in an in vitro model of hypoxia/oxidative stress injury in A549 epithelial cells, with special emphasis on the role of the… CONTINUE READING
