Alveolar epithelial type I and type II cells (AEC I and II) are closely aligned in alveolar surface. There is much interest in the precise identification of AEC I and II in order to separate and evaluate functional and other properties of these two cells. This study aims to identify specific AEC I and AEC II cell markers by DNA microarray using the in vitro trans-differentiation of AEC II into AEC I-like cells as a model. Quantitative real-time PCR confirmed five AEC I genes: fibroblast growth… CONTINUE READING
