Intratracheal Clara cell
secretory protein (CCSP) administration in preterm infants with or at risk of respiratory distress syndrome.
DC-LAMP stains pulmonary adenocarcinoma with bronchiolar Clara cell
Thyroid transcription factor-1, hepatocyte nuclear factor-3[beta], surfactant protein B, C, and Clara cell
secretory protein in developing mouse lung.
In a second set of experiments, Clara cells
were coexposed to Cd at different concentrations (up to 50 [micro]M final) and to 750 [micro]M 2-AF (or 4-ABP) in culture medium.
2000) treated rabbits with ipomeanol during three postnatal time periods that represent early, intermediate, and final stages of Clara cell
A mechanism for the development of Clara cell
lesions in the mouse lung after exposure totrichloroethylene.
The authors say this may indicate that repeated exposure to disinfection by-products around indoor swimming pools damages Clara cell
One of these, Clara cell
protein (CC16), is a small, 16-kDa protein produced and secreted by the nonciliated bronchiolar Clara cells
and detectable in serum.
For example, they secrete Clara cell
secretory protein (CCSP) (9), which inhibits pulmonary inflammation (10); surfactant proteins, which prevent alveolar collapse (11-15); and protease inhibitors such as secretory leukocyte protease inhibitor (SLPI) (16-18) and elafin (17,18).
8-kDa Clara cell
protein (CC16 or CC10), which is secreted in large amounts at the surface of airways from where it leaks into the serum, most likely by passive diffusion (5-8).
Dr Whitsett and his team at Cincinnatti Children's team Hospital found "good" lung cells called Clara cells
change into mucus cells in a process called metaplasia - and that the process could be reversed.
Mucinous type is composed of mucous (goblet) cells, while nonmucinous type has clara cells
and type II cells.
