Tacrolimus induces fibroblasts apoptosis and reduces epidural fibrosis by regulating miR-429 and its target of RhoE.


Tacrolimus (FK506) has been demonstrated to reduce epidural fibrosis. However, the detailed mechanism of action has not been elucidated. Aberrant miR-429 is involved in many diseases. The aim of this study was to describe the exact mechanism of FK506 induced apoptosis in fibroblasts and the prevention of epidural fibrosis. FK506 induced fibroblast apoptosis… (More)
