Recent permeability studies comparing endothelial cell phenotypes derived from alveolar and extra-alveolar vessels have significant implications for interpreting the mechanisms of fluid homeostasis in the intact lung. These studies indicate that confluent monolayers of rat pulmonary microvascular endothelial cells had a hydraulic conductance (L(p)) that was only 5% and a transendothelial flux rate for 72-kDa dextran only 9% of values determined for rat pulmonary artery endothelial cell… CONTINUE READING
