It was hypothesized that cell-to-cell interaction between human alveolar macrophages (AM) and alveolar epithelium, might be an important factor leading to nitric oxide synthase-2 (NOS2) messenger ribonucleic acid (mRNA) and protein expression by constituent cells of the alveolar wall and/or AM. NOS2 mRNA and the protein expression patterns of human AM and alveolar epithelial cells type II (AEC-II) isolated from normal parts of lung resections of patients with pulmonary malignancies were… CONTINUE READING
