Development, differentiation, and distribution of macrophages in fetal rat lungs were investigated immunohistochemically using anti-rat macrophage monoclonal antibodies. In the lung buds, RM-1+ macrophages were first detected on fetal day 13, and some showed reactivity for TRPM-2. They populated in the peribronchial mesenchyme of the lung buds, proliferated in loco, and showed no peroxidase activity in any intracellular organelles. Their immunophenotypic and ultrastructural features were… CONTINUE READING
