Expression of surfactant protein mRNA in normal and neoplastic lung of B6C3F1 mice as demonstrated by in situ hybridization.

The localization of surfactant protein (SP), A, B, C, and D mRNAs was examined in B6C3F1 mice in the normal lung, and in a range of spontaneous proliferative lung lesions using nonisotopic in situ hybridization (ISH). The aim was to develop diagnostic markers, and if possible, throw further light on the histogenesis of these lesions. Tissues from 21 animals… CONTINUE READING
