Human rhinovirus (RV) is the most common cause of upper respiratory tract infection (URTI) and chronic airway disease exacerbation. Cough is present in 50–80% of URTI cases, accompanied by heightened airway hypersensitivity, yet no effective treatmen...

Inflammatory mediators modulate thrombin and cathepsin-G signaling in human bronchial fibroblasts by inducing expression of proteinase-activated receptor-4 (2007)
Journal Article
Ramachandran, R., Sadofsky, L., Xiao, Y., Botham, A., Cowen, M., Morice, A., & Compton, S. J. (2007). Inflammatory mediators modulate thrombin and cathepsin-G signaling in human bronchial fibroblasts by inducing expression of proteinase-activated receptor-4. American journal of physiology. Lung cellular and molecular physiology, 292(3), L788-L798. doi:10.1152/ajplung.00226.2006

Human lung fibroblasts express proteinase-activated receptor-1 (PAR 1 ), PAR 2 and PAR 3 , but not PAR 4 . Because PAR 2 has inflammatory effects on human primary bronchial fibroblasts (HPBF), we asked 1) whether the inflammatory mediators TNF-α and...
