Development, organization, and function of tight junctional complexes in the tracheal epithelium of infant ferrets.

Abstract

The surface epithelium of newborn ferret airways matures rapidly in the first month of life. Prominent developmental features include a transition from predominantly non-ciliated to ciliated cells, quantitative and qualitative changes in secretion of macromolecules, and a transition from secretory to absorptive patterns of ion transport.
