Substantial differences between mouse strains have been reported in the lesions present in the lung during the early phase of radiation injury. Some strains show only classical pneumonitis, while other strains develop substantial fibrosis and hyaline membranes which contribute appreciably to respiratory insufficiency, in addition to pneumonitis. Other strains are intermediate between these extremes. These differences correlate with intrinsic differences in activities of lung plasminogen… Expand
Evidence for two patterns of inheritance of sensitivity to induction of lung fibrosis in mice by radiation, one of which involves two genes.
TLDR
It is suggested that two autosomal genes which function additively determine the extent of the principal type of fibrosis in these strains and in the F1 mice this unusual fibrosis appears to be regulated independently by two additional genes, one of which is sex-linked. Expand
Fibroblast radiosensitivity in vitro and lung fibrosis in vivo: comparison between a fibrosis-prone and fibrosis-resistant mouse strain.
TLDR
The goal of the studies presented here was to determine if the radiosensitivity of fibroblasts in vitro isolated from mouse lungs was correlated with the severity of radiation- induced fibrosis in the lungs of two inbred strains of mice previously shown to differ markedly in their susceptibility to radiation-induced lung fibrosis.

Revisiting Strain-Related Differences in Radiation Sensitivity of the Mouse Lung: Recognizing and Avoiding the Confounding Effects of Pleural Effusions
TLDR
The results caution against the routine use of C57BL/6 mice in radiation lung experiments because pleural effusions are rarely observed in patients as a consequence of radiotherapy, and future experiments designed to investigate genetic determinants of radiation lung damage should focus on the high sensitivity of the C57L strain. Expand
Development of fibrosis after lung irradiation in relation to inflammation and lung function in a mouse strain prone to fibrosis.
TLDR
The development of lung fibrosis after single-dose thoracic irradiation was studied histologically in C57L/J male mice and the average number of macrophages per unit area of fibrosis declined during the latent period and changed little during the early and late phases. Expand
Whole-Lung Irradiation Results in Pulmonary Macrophage Alterations that are Subpopulation and Strain Specific
TLDR
Differences observed in the responses of these discrete macrophage populations between the fibrosis-prone versus pneumonitis-prone mice nonetheless suggest a possible role for these cells in the development of long-term consequences of pulmonary radiation exposure. Expand
Compartmental responses after thoracic irradiation of mice: strain differences.
TLDR
The major molecular and cellular events in lungs of C57BL/6J and C3H/HeN mice, which develop late fibrosis and subacute pneumonitis after thoracic irradiation respectively, take place within the interstitium and are not reflected within BAL populations. Expand
Universal and radiation-specific loci influence murine susceptibility to radiation-induced pulmonary fibrosis.
TLDR
The QTL on chromosome 17 for radiation-induced lung fibrosis is within the same region as QTLs identified for lung damage after other insults, including bleomycin, ozone, and particle exposure, as well as for asthma, suggesting that this region of chromosome 17 may harbor a "universal" lung injury gene. Expand
Different radiation susceptibility among five strains of mice detected by a skin reaction.
TLDR
The variation between murine strains in macroscopic and histopathological changes in skin during the progression and resolution of damage caused by irradiation suggests an inter-strain variation in the expression of genes involved in injury, apoptosis, repair, and remodeling. Expand
Strain-dependent damage in mouse lung after carbon ion irradiation.
TLDR
A strain-dependent differential response in mice to C-ion thoracic irradiation was demonstrated and candidate molecules that could be implicated in the between-strain variance to early hemorrhagic pneumonitis after C-ions irradiation were identified. Expand
Radiation produces differential changes in cytokine profiles in radiation lung fibrosis sensitive and resistant mice
TLDR
Positive correlation between serum and tissue levels suggests that blood may be used as a surrogate marker for tissue after radiation induced earlier and greater temporal changes in multiple cytokines in the pulmonary fibrosis sensitive mice. Expand

A quantitative histological study of strain-dependent differences in the effects of irradiation on mouse lung during the intermediate and late phases.
TLDR
It is suggested that nonperfusion of apparently normal lung acini is a major factor in late-phase deaths in those mouse strains which show little or no fibrosis. Expand
A quantitative histological study of strain-dependent differences in the effects of irradiation on mouse lung during the early phase.
TLDR
The degree of lung impairment in mice dying of respiratory insufficiency was assessed by scoring lung acini as nonfunctional or open and presumably functional, and over 70% of acini were nonfunctional as a result of airflow obstruction. Expand
Predictive biochemical assays for late radiation effects.
TLDR
From ultrastructural and biochemical studies, it is evident that Type II pneumocytes are an early target of radiation and the release of surfactant into the alveolus shortly after exposure persists for days and weeks. Expand
The role of strain variation in murine bleomycin-induced pulmonary fibrosis.
TLDR
Findings indicate that genetic variation influences the development of bleomycin-induced pulmonary fibrosis and this model may be useful as a basis to study the role of genetics in general fibrotic mechanisms. Expand
Long term effects of radiation and combined modalities on mouse lung.
TLDR
It is suggested that fibrosis always follows pneumonitis, but pneum onitis is not a necessary preliminary step to fibrosis, and Bleomycin elicits several morphological alterations characteristic of radiation, and, when combined with the latter, appears to exacerbate radiation effects. Expand
Late effects of fractionated pi-mesons compared to X rays on mouse lung.
TLDR
Early and late delayed effects of up to 20 fractions of pions and X rays were investigated in the mouse lung, and it was observed that the mice were unusually sensitive, with a single dose X ray ED50/180 of 8.8 Gy. Expand
The relationship between endothelial dysfunction and collagen accumulation in irradiated rat lung.
TLDR
In rat lung, arterial perfusion, endothelial dysfunction and interstitial fibrosis, the dose-effect curves for these three responses of the lung in situ change less than 5% per Gy over the dose range of 10-30 Gy, a smaller variation than would be predicted from endothelial cell survival data based on clonogenic assays in vitro or in vivo.

Kinetics of inflammatory and fibrotic pulmonary changes in a murine model of silicosis.
TLDR
A murine model of experimental silicosis developed after the intratracheal injection of alpha-quartz crystals demonstrates great potential for elucidating the role of the immune system in the development of pulmonary inflammation and fibrosis induced by toxic inorganic particulates. Expand
Radiation injury in rat lung. II. Angiotensin-converting enzyme activity.
TLDR
Reduced ACE activity accompanies radiation-induced hypoperfusion and endothelial ultrastructural changes in rat lung, which precede the development of pulmonary fibrosis. Expand
A genetic model for evaluation of susceptibility to ozone-induced inflammation.
TLDR
The phenotypes of inbred mice and progeny of crosses between B6 and C3 strains were consistent with the hypothesis that a single autosomal recessive gene at the Inf locus confers susceptibility to acute O3-induced influx of PMNs, but the genetic control of altered permeability is not clear. Expand
