[Transport of proteins and peptides across human cultured alveolar A549 cell monolayers].

AIM An in vitro cultured monolayer system of alveolar epithelial cells was used as a model to investigate the transport pathway peptides or proteins, salmon calcitonin (sCT), insulin (INS), recombinant hirudin (rHAV2), and recombinant human growth hormone (rhGH), in pulmonary epithelium in vivo. METHODS Human lung adenocarcinoma A549 cells formed… CONTINUE READING
