Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF) is characterized by lung scarring and has no effective treatment. Fibroblast-to-myofibroblast differentiation and myofibroblast proliferation and migration are major clinical manifestations of this disease; hence, blocking these processes is a practical treatment strategy. Here, highly upregulated LINC00941/lncIAPF was found to accelerate pulmonary fibrosis by promoting fibroblast-to-myofibroblast differentiation and myofibroblast proliferation and migration. Assay for transposase-accessible chromatin using sequencing and chromatin immunoprecipitation experiments elucidated that histone 3 lysine 27 acetylation (H3K27ac) activated...
