Recent advances revealed that airway epithelium possesses versatile functions and plays a vital role in the mucosal defense and inflammatory responses. A maintenance of airway epithelium integrity is thus important and appears to be tightly regulated by a balanced cell proliferation and apoptosis. However, homeostasis of airway epithelium is likely affected by multiple environmental pathogens, irritants (reactive oxygen species, allergens, etc.), and toxins that may lead to various lung… CONTINUE READING
