TGF-β1-miR-200a-PTEN induces epithelial–mesenchymal transition and fibrosis of pancreatic stellate cells


Although the function of miR-200a has been discussed in many cancers and fibrotic diseases, its role in pancreatic fibrosis is still poorly understood. In this study, we for the first time confirm that miR-200a attenuates TGF-β1-induced pancreatic stellate cells activation and extracellular matrix formation. First, we find that TGF-β1 induces activation and… (More)
