Table 1 Apoptosis-relevant Genes Up-regulated in the Airway Epithelium of Smokers1

From: Upregulation of pirin expression by chronic cigarette smoking is associated with bronchial epithelial cell apoptosis

Gene ID Description Smokers/non-smokers (fold up) p value Reference relevant to apoptosis
Y07867 pirin 3.12 0.002 [21]
U77594 retinoic acid receptor responder 2 2.59 0.007 [39]
AB000584 prostate differentiation factor/growth differentiation factor 15 2.44 0.033 [40]
L27559 insulin-like growth factor binding protein 5 1.94 0.038 [41]
X51801 bone morphogenetic protein 7 (osteogenic protein 1) 1.83 0.046 [42]
M18728 carcinoembryonic antigen-related cell adhesion molecule 6 1.76 0.008 [43]
M38591 S100 calcium-binding protein A10 1.75 0.043 [44]
  1. 1All up-regulated genes were evaluated for an association with apoptosis by reviewing published information about each gene available in public databases. Genes that had experimental evidence linking their expression to apoptosis were selected for further study.
