Interactions between epithelial cells and the extracellular matrix through integrins play a key role in the development of the lung by modulating branching morphogenesis, epithelial cell polarization, and differentiation. To determine the role of integrins during the different stages of lung development, we investigated the distribution of eight integrin subunits in the trachea and lung from human fetuses. In distal airways, during the early pseudoglandular stage of development, the alpha2… CONTINUE READING
