This paper describes a molecular mechanism for the loss of alveolar tissue in cigarette smoke-induced lung injury. Under the influence of adverse environmental conditions including hypoxia, the intracellular stress protein Rtp801 is transcribed. This study sought to demonstrate that Rtp801 downregulates the kinase mammalian target of …
