The pulmonary lipofibroblast (lipid interstitial cell) and its contributions to alveolar development.

Abstract

The pulmonary lipofibroblast is located in the alveolar interstitium and is recognizable by its characteristic lipid droplets. During alveolar development it participates in the synthesis of extracellular matrix structural proteins, such as collagen and elastin, and as an accessory cell to the type II pneumocyte, in the synthesis of surfactant.
