Transforming growth factor-beta stimulates the expression of desmosomal proteins in bronchial epithelial cells.

Abstract

Transforming growth factor-beta 1 (TGF-beta 1) has been shown to induce squamous differentiation of cultured airway epithelial cells. It has also been shown to increase expression of matrix proteins and integrin receptors in cell culture of these and other cells. However, it is unknown if TGF-beta 1 affects expression of genes encoding intercellular… (More)
