Causal Biological Networks Database
The Wound Healing network describes the causal mechanisms involved in the wound healing response in pulmonary tissue following exposure to cigarette smoke. This includes processes related to cell migration as a result of MMP degradation of matrix components and progenitor cell differentiation mediated by NOTCH1, SOX2, KRT14 and CTNNB1.
