Bronchoalveolar lavage fluid from normal rats stimulates DNA synthesis in rat alveolar type II cells.

Abstract

Proliferation of alveolar type II cells after lung injury is important for the restoration of the alveolar epithelium. Bronchoalveolar lavage fluid (BALF) may represent an important source of growth factors for alveolar type II cells. To test this possibility, BALF fluid was collected from normal rats, concentrated 10-fold by Amicon filtration, and tested… (More)
