DNA Sensor Protein STING May Protect Against Fibrosis, Mouse Study Shows

A DNA sensor protein called STING was found to play an unexpected protective role in fibrosis development by regulating inflammatory immune responses in an induced idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) mouse model, a study has discovered.  The study, “Protective Role of the Nucleic Acid Sensor STING in Pulmonary Fibrosis,” was published in the journal Frontiers in Immunology.  While the exact cause of IPF is unclear, it is thought to arise due to abnormal wound healing, leading…
