Upregulation of tenascin and TGFbeta production in a type II alveolar epithelial cell line by antibody against a pulmonary auto-antigen.

Abstract

Type II alveolar epithelial cells express a 70-90 kDa antigen to which circulating auto-antibodies have been previously identified in patients with cryptogenic fibrosing alveolitis (CFA). In vitro experiments have been conducted with a rabbit polyclonal antibody raised to this auto-antigen, and the type II epithelial cell line A549. This study examined… (More)
