Hypercapnia (elevated CO(2) levels) occurs as a consequence of poor alveolar ventilation and impairs alveolar fluid reabsorption (AFR) by promoting Na,K-ATPase endocytosis. We studied the mechanisms… (More)
BACKGROUND In patients with acute respiratory failure, gas exchange is impaired due to the accumulation of fluid in the lung airspaces. This life-threatening syndrome is treated with mechanical… (More)
Dozens of human cases infected with H7N9 subtype avian influenza virus (AIV) have been confirmed in China since March, 2013. Distribution data of sexes, ages, professions and regions of the cases… (More)
Although several studies have shown that an induction of insulin-like growth factor (IGF) components occurs during hyperoxia-mediated lung injury, the role of these components in tissue repair is not… (More)
The frequency of mature hybrids, including post-F1 individuals, between loblolly (Pinus taeda L.) and shortleaf pine (Pinus echinata Mill.), detectable with a codominant nuclear marker, was studied...
Alveolar epithelial type I and type II cells (AEC I and II) are closely aligned in alveolar surface. There is much interest in the precise identification of AEC I and II in order to separate and… (More)
There are no ideal cell lines available for alveolar epithelial type I and II cells (AEC I and II) at the present time. The current methods for isolating AEC I and II give limited purities. Here, we… (More)
Alveolar epithelial type II cells secrete lung surfactant via exocytosis. Soluble N-ethylmaleimide-sensitive factor attachment protein receptors (SNARE) are implicated in this process. Lipid rafts,… (More)
Although type A γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA) receptors (ligand-gated Cl− channels) have been extensively studied in the central nervous system, no information is available on this receptor in lung… (More)
Stimulation of Na(+)/K(+)-ATPase activity in alveolar epithelial cells by cAMP involves its recruitment from intracellular compartments to the plasma membrane. Here, we studied the role of the actin… (More)
