Receptors for advanced glycation end-products (RAGEs) are multiligand cell surface receptors highly expressed in the lung that contribute to alveolar epithelial cell differentiation during embryogenesis and the modulation of pulmonary inflammation during disease. When RAGEs are overexpressed throughout embryogenesis, severe lung hypoplasia ensues,(More)
BACKGROUND α5 nicotinic acetylcholine receptor (nAChR) subunits structurally stabilize functional nAChRs in many non-neuronal tissue types. The expression of α5 nAChR subunits and cell-specific markers were assessed during lung morphogenesis by co-localizing immunohistochemistry from embryonic day (E) 13.5 to post natal day (PN) 20.
