Abstract

Although we have demonstrated that Angiotensin II (Ang II) signaling plays a role in colon and lung tumorigenesis, the precise mechanisms by which Ang II stimulates tumorigenesis remain unclear. The aim of this study was to investigate the synergistic induction of COX-2 by Ang II and pr...read more
