    Background: Bronchioles are critical zones in cigarette smoke (CS)-induced lung inflammation. However, there have been few studies on the in vivo dynamics of cytokine gene expression in bronchiolar epithelial cells in response to CS. Methods: We subjected C57BL/6J mice to CS (whole body...

    Heat shock proteins (HSPs) can be induced by various stresses and play an important role in cell cycle progression. HSP70 has been shown to act as an inhibitor of apoptosis. We studied HSP70 expression in bronchial epithelial cells of C57BL/6 mice and homozygous HPS70 knockout mice (hsp70.1-/-)...

    Pulmonary neuroendocrine (NE) cells are found as clusters called neuroepithelial bodies (NEBs) or as single cells scattered in the respiratory epithelium. They express a variety of bioactive peptides, and they are thought to be the origin of NE lung tumors. Proadrenomedullin N-terminal 20...

    The occurrence and distribution of the regulatory peptide endothelin in normal and inflamed human dental pulp was studied by immunocytochemistry. Endothelial cells in both normal and inflamed pulp displayed endothelin-like immunoreactivity. Neither pulp cells nor dental nerves were...

    Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) have been implicated in the pathological processes of interstitial lung diseases. However, underlying mechanisms, particularly for activity levels and distribution of activated MMP-2 in the disease process, are yet to be elucidated. The present study investigated...

N.; MAUAD, THAIS // Toxicologic Pathology;2009, Vol. 37 Issue 3, p324 

    Smoked cocaine (crack cocaine) causes several forms of injury to the respiratory tract, including asthma exacerbations, lung edema and hemorrhage, and nasal mucosal alterations. Few studies, however, have assessed respiratory tract pathology in habitual users of crack cocaine. Here, we describe...

    Club (Clara) Cell Secretory Protein (CCSP, or CC16) is produced mainly by non-ciliated airway epithelial cells including bronchiolar club cells and the change of its expression has been shown to associate with the progress and severity of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD). In an...

    Although progenitor cells of the conducting airway have been spatially localized and some insights have been gained regarding their molecular phenotype, relatively little is known about the mechanisms regulating their maintenance, activation, and differentiation. This study investigates the...

  • FROM CELLULAR DOSES TO AVERAGE LUNG DOSE. Hofmann, W.; Winkler-Heil, R. // Radiation Protection Dosimetry;Nov2015, Vol. 167 Issue 1-3, p49 

    Sensitive basal and secretory cells receive a wide range of doses in human bronchial and bronchiolar airways. Variations of cellular doses arise from the location of target cells in the bronchial epithelium of a given airway and the asymmetry and variability of airway dimensions of the lung...
