Featured Article: miR-200b downregulates CFTR during hypoxia in human lung epithelial cells

In the lung, changing conditions such as hypoxia alter ion and water transport and thereby affect airway surface liquid levels that are critical for mucociliary transport and proper lung function. Severe alterations in this process lead to pulmonary diseases such as cystic fibrosis. Here, we examined how hypoxia altered the expression of the cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR), a critical ion channel that regulates airway surface liquid levels.
