Accordingly, in our other project, which is currently underway, our aim is to examine target genes such as ChSy-1 and C4ST-1, enzymes responsible for the synthesis and elongation of the glycosaminoglycan chain of biglycan proteoglycan. In the present study, we were only able to show that Noxs, ROS, and p38MAPK are signaling molecules in the phosphorylation of the TGF-[beta]-mediated Smad2L.
