Viral antigen was detected in neurons in the brain, bronchiolar epithelium
and macrophages in the lungs, bile duct epithelium in the liver, and macrophages and lymphocytes in lymph nodes.
Bronchiolar-type epithelium that grows along the alveolar surfaces adjacent to bronchioles has been termed peribronchiolar metaplasia or lambertosis, in reference to the canals of Lambert through which bronchiolar epithelium
was once considered to traverse to grow on alveolar septa (21,29,38-41) (Figures 3 and 4).
Use of micro-dissected airways to better define metabolism and cytotoxicity in murine bronchiolar epithelium
We move silently and cleanly about our towns or countryside at almost no risk to anyone else, and (this puts us even more on the side of the angels) we leave the air cleaner than we find it, thanks to the trapping of airborne particulate debris by the mucous sheet covering our bronchial and bronchiolar epithelium
The immunohistochemical study demonstrated morbilliviral antigen in bronchiolar epithelium
, type 2 pneumocytes, and multinucleate (syncytial) cells from lung (Figure 1).
The abnormal stimulation of bronchial and bronchiolar epithelium
can lead to basal cell hyperplasia followed by either squamous metaplasia (characterized by maintenance of the basal cell phenotype) or goblet cell hyperplasia.
The infiltration of inflammatory cells into the lung is responsible for further damage to tracheal and bronchiolar epithelium
Attachment to bronchiolar epithelium
was moderate in seals and scarce in cetaceans, and attachment to alveolar epithelium was scarce in all 4 species.
cells known as Clara cells are thought to help defend airways against damage; Clara cell protein (CC16) is a lung-specific protein thought to protect the respiratory tract from inflammation.
