Alveolar epithelial type I cells cover most of the internal surface area of the lungs. Ultrastructural studies demonstrate that alveolar epithelial type I cell damage is frequently observed in acute and chronic lung diseases. This article discusses the use of cell-selective proteins as markers for the investigation of injury and repair of the alveolar… CONTINUE READING
