Quinolone-Induced Upregulation of Osteopontin Gene Promoter Activity in Human Lung Epithelial Cell Line A549
Antimicrobial Agents and Chemotherapy, 05/30/2012
Shiratori B et al. – Authors examined the role of quinolones on apoptosis and found that sparfloxacin decreased the late apoptosis of A549 cells, but garenoxacin did not show the antiapoptotic effect. The antiapoptotic effects of quinolones do not appear to be associated with OPN elevation.
