Ion transport properties of fetal sheep alveolar epithelial cells in monolayer culture.

Abstract

Alveolar type II cells were isolated from late-term fetal sheep to investigate ion transport across fetal distal lung epithelium. In Ussing chambers, basal transepithelial potential difference (PD; reference apical side), equivalent short-circuit current (Ieq), and resistance were -0.10 +/- 0.05 mV, 0.10 +/- 0.08 microA/cm2, and 821.5 +/- 38.8 omega .cm2… (More)
