Pulmonary superoxide dismutase (SOD) plays an important role in the lung defense against O2 toxicity. We have previously demonstrated that tracheal insufflation of interleukin-1 alpha (IL-1) selectively enhances pulmonary MnSOD and protects rats against O2 toxicity. However, little is known about the cellular distribution of pulmonary MnSOD- and(More)
Tracheal insufflation of chloramphenicol acetyltransferase (CAT) expression plasmid (pBL-CAT) DNA without any gene delivery system results in transfection of rat lungs (Am J Physiol. 1995;268:L1052-L1056). This study investigated the pulmonary response to tracheal insufflation of plasmid DNA and the immunohistochemical localization of transgene expression(More)
