Regulation of prostaglandin availability in human fetal lung by differential localisation of prostaglandin H synthase-1 and prostaglandin dehydrogenase


Specialisation of the respiratory portion of human fetal lung commences around 20–24 weeks gestation. In contrast, human fetal lung in vitro has the capacity to self-differentiate from 12 weeks gestation when grown in media devoid of growth factors or hormones, suggesting activation of autocrine or paracrine factors in vitro, or removal of the fetus from in… (More)
