From: Bone Morphogenetic Protein (BMP)-4 and BMP-7 regulate differentially Transforming Growth Factor (TGF)-β1 in normal human lung fibroblasts (NHLF)

Figure 6

TGF-β1-induced myofibroblast like phenotype in NHLF is partially inhibited by BMP-7. NHLF were stimulated with 5 ng/ml TGF-β1 or 100 ng/ml BMP-4 or BMP-7 or with TGF-β1 in the presence of BMP-4 or BMP-7 for 72 h. Representative panel of α-SMA expression was obtained by immunohistochemistry (A) and western blot of cell lysates for α-SMA is shown in (B). Data are representative of five independent experiments.
