Potential role of Clara cell protein, an endogenous phospholipase A2 inhibitor, in acute lung injury.


It is now recognized that epithelial cells lining airways and alveoli are capable of releasing various mediators, which have the potential to modulate local inflammatory reactions. The amount of the 16 kDa Clara cell protein (CC16), an inhibitor of phospholipase A2 activity produced by pulmonary epithelial cells, was measured by means of a sensitive… (More)
