Effects of a viral laryngotracheitis on the epithelial barrier of chicken airways.


The effects of a virus infection on the barrier function of tracheal epithelium were compared to the effects of a chemical agent (methacholine) which selectively increases membrane permeability, and both were compared to controls. The disruption of the airway epithelium induced by the virus infection caused an increased permeation of horseradish peroxidase… (More)
