Bioelectric properties of cultured epithelial monolayers from distal lung of 18-day fetal rat.

Abstract

In vivo studies of fetal sheep suggest that the liquid present in the lumen of the lung throughout fetal life is derived from Cl- secretion by the pulmonary epithelium. Monolayer preparations of enriched epithelial cells from distal fetal rat (18-day gestation) lung, grown in serum-free media, were histologically similar to acinar (prealveolar) structures… (More)
