PURPOSE: Pulmonary fibrosis is a sever disease which threaten human health, with progressing myofibroblast proliferation, extracellular matrix accumulation. Epithelial-mesenchymal transition (EMT) is an important resource of myofibroblast in pulmonary fibrosis. We had found that NMDA receptors participated in bleomycin induced acute lung injury. We aimed to find out whether NMDA receptors activation contributes to EMT.
