The distribution and regulation of leukemia inhibitory factor (LIF) and its receptor (LIFR) in human lung tissue is unknown. We recently found that LIF was immunolocalized to several cell types in human airways, and that exogenous LIF modulated neural and contractile responses of explanted airways. The present study aimed to determine the cellular distribution and regulation of gene transcripts for LIF and LIFR in human lung, and measured the release of LIF in response to anti-immunoglobulin… CONTINUE READING
