A proteomics approach to ventilator-induced lung injury might identify protein patterns that contribute to epithelial injury. To identify changes in alveolar type II cells (ATII), rats were mechanically ventilated for 5 hours with a high tidal volume (HTV; 20 ml/kg, no positive end expiratory pressure) or a low tidal volume (LTV; 6 ml/kg, positive end expiratory pressure 4 cmH2O) and compared with pooled controls without mechanical ventilation (SV). ATII were isolated and lysed. Protein expression was compared using the recently introduced cleavable isotope coded affinity tag (ICAT) methodology. After tryptic digestion, cysteine containing peptides were tagged with biotin, extracted using an avidin-coated column and identified by HPLC and mass spectrometry with collision-induced dissociation. Spectra were interrogated against the Swissprot database and quantified using the ProteinProspector software. HTV ventilation resulted in morphologic changes, pulmonary edema and neutrophil influx in the ...
Lung surfactant reduces surface tension and maintains the stability of alveoli. How surfactant is released from alveolar epithelial type II cells is not fully understood. Vacuolar ATPase (V-ATPase) is the enzyme responsible for pumping H+ into lamellar bodies and is required for the processing of surfactant proteins and the packaging of surfactant lipids. However, its role in lung surfactant secretion is unknown. Proteomic analysis revealed that vacuolar ATPase (V-ATPase) dominated the alveolar type II cell lipid raft proteome. Western blotting confirmed the association of V-ATPase a1 and B1/2 subunits with lipid rafts and their enrichment in lamellar bodies. The dissipation of lamellar body pH gradient by Bafilomycin A1 (Baf A1), an inhibitor of V-ATPase, increased surfactant secretion. Baf A1-stimulated secretion was blocked by the intracellular Ca2+ chelator, BAPTA-AM, the protein kinase C (PKC) inhibitor, staurosporine, and the Ca2+/calmodulin-dependent protein kinase II (CaMKII), KN-62. Baf A1
Inactivation of K+ channels responsible for delayed rectification in rat type II alveolar epithelial cells was studied in Ringer, 160 mM K-Ringer, and 20 mM Ca-Ringer. Inactivation is slower and less complete when the extracellular K+ concentration is increased from 4.5 to 160 mM. Inactivation is faster and more complete when the extracellular Ca2+ concentration is increased from 2 to 20 mM. Several observations suggest that inactivation is state-dependent. In each of these solutions depolarization to potentials near threshold results in slow and partial inactivation, whereas depolarization to potentials at which the K+ conductance, gK, is fully activated results in maximal inactivation, suggesting that open channels inactivate more readily than closed channels. The time constant of current inactivation during depolarizing pulses is clearly voltage-dependent only at potentials where activation is incomplete, a result consistent with coupling of inactivation to activation. Additional evidence for ...
Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome (ARDS) is a severe medical condition which is characterized by significant alveolar fluid accumulation and insufficient gas exchange. Cardiac surgery, ECMO, and use of cardiac medications are all known risk factors for ARDS which also complicates management of these and other cardiovascular diseases. Effective alveolar fluid clearance and repair of a functional alveolar-capillary barrier are considered the primary mechanisms for edema resolution in ARDS. Apart from enhancing fluid clearance, the Na+,K+-ATPase has been shown important for alveolar barrier function. Our lab showed that overexpression of the Na+,K+-ATPase b1 subunit into lungs enhances alveolar barrier integrity in previously injured lungs in mice and pigs. Previous in vitro data indicated that MRCKa mediates the upregulation of tight junction (TJ) proteins and epithelial barrier integrity by b1 overexpression. I hypothesize that the b1-Na+,K+-ATPase regulates alveolar barrier function through ...
The overall goal of this application is to develop a compelling rationale and workable methodology for the treatment of diffuse alveolar damage with transplanted human epithelial stem/progenitor cells capable of long term engraftment and improved organ function. Stem/progenitor replacement therapy is envisioned as a meaningful therapeutic adjunct in several clinical situations dominated by diffuse alveolar damage with epithelial loss: severe, acute lung injury, e.g. due to influenza or other causes of ARDS, as well as acute exacerbations of chronic fibrotic lung disease. Recent studies discussed in the application indicate effective alveolar regeneration, and thus improved lung function, requires both a first phase of expansion and migration of stem/progenitor cells to re-establish alveolar barriers followed by a second phase of differentiation of new barrier cells into mature type II (AEC2s) and type I alveolar cells. To develop a translational program for alveolar regeneration by ...

Notch is an ancient cell-signaling system that regulates the specification of cell fate. Recently, Notch was found to confer antigen presenting cell function on mast cells, induce histamine release in human basophils and regulate migration and survival of eosinophils.. In acute lung injury, alveolar type II cells activate macrophages, secrete soluble mediators, migrate and spread in response to the injury. Additionally, Notch stimulated myofibroblast differentiation and migration of cultured RLE-6TN cells. However, until now, nothing is known on the role of Notch activation regarding proliferation of rat alveolar type II cells.. Rat alveolar type II cells (RLE 6TN) were obtained from the American Type Culture Collection (ATCC no. CRL-2300; Manassas, VA, USA) and were cultured in DMEM/Hams F12 containing 10% fetal calf serum and L-glutamine. Cell proliferation was measured by direct cell count and the fluorometric proliferation assay EZ4U basing on tetrazolium salt reduction. Cells were ...

The present study was undertaken to explore at the cellular level possible mechanisms of KGF action susceptible to account for its protective effects toward the exposure of the developing lung to hyperoxia, used as a model of alveolar injury. We report an enhanced rate of alveolar cell wound closure in vitro and maintenance of lung cell content in vivo, likely due to enhanced survival of alveolar epithelial type II cells.. Most studies demonstrating a protective effect of KGF against lung injury have used the intratracheal route (38, 54), rather than the systemic route (6), whereas we administered KGF intraperitoneally and during oxygen exposure. Possible mechanisms to explain the protective effects of KGF in acute lung injury were recently reviewed (57) and are mainly based on effects on alveolar and airway epithelial cells, including increased proliferation (33, 39, 53, 63), increased surfactant production (14, 27, 50, 61), enhanced DNA repair (12, 51, 60), and decreased apoptosis (12, 43). ...
BACKGROUND: Although alveolar macrophages are considered to be the primary cellular mediators of host defence in the lung, there is increasing evidence that type II cells may also play an active role in host defence. A study was undertaken to investigate whether type II cells generate O2-. and H2O2 via an NADPH oxidase-like system and whether exposure of the type II cells to soluble or particulate stimuli known to activate NADPH oxidase in macrophages also leads to increased production of H2O2. METHODS: Rat type II cells and alveolar macrophages were exposed to 10, 100, or 1000 nM phorbol-12-myristate-13-acetate (PMA) and the production of O2-. and H2O2 was determined by chemiluminescence. Thirty minutes before stimulation with 1 microM PMA type II cells were also exposed to the same concentrations of a protein kinase C (PKC) antagonist GF109203x, the non-selective protein kinase inhibitor staurosporine (1, 10, or 100 nM), or the NADPH oxidase inhibitor diphenyliodonium chloride (DPI) (1, 10, ...

A method is described for the rapid preparation of lung cell fractions enriched in type II alveolar pneumocytes. Isolated perfused rabbit lungs are exposed to Fe3O4 by tracheal lavage, which permits pulmonary alveolar macrophages to phagocytize the particles. Alveolar epithelial cells are then selectively freed from the basement membrane matrix by critical placement of collagenase and elastase. Detached cells are harvested either by repeated tracheal lavage or by mincing the lobes and filtering freed cells through a series of nylon mesh sieves. Iron oxide-containing macrophages are then removed from the harvested cells by a strong magnetic field. A final sizing of the macrophage-depleted suspension yields a preparation enriched in alveolar type II cells. Eight million viable cells (95% type II) were obtained per rabbit lung when harvested by lavage, while 32 ± 106 (88% type II) cells were obtained from minced lungs. These values for cell yield and relative purity are comparable to previously ...
Acute lung injury (ALI) leading to acute respiratory distress (ARDS) is a global health concern. ARDS patients have significant pulmonary inflammation leading to flooding of the pulmonary alveoli. This prevents normal gas exchange with consequent hypoxemia, and causes mortality. A thin fluid layer in the alveoli is normal. The maintenance of this thin layer results from fluid movement out of the pulmonary capillaries into the alveolar interstitium driven by vascular hydrostatic pressure and then through alveolar tight junctions. This is then balanced by fluid reabsorption from the alveolar space mediated by transepithelial salt and water transport through alveolar cells. Reabsorption is a two-step process: first, sodium enters via sodium-permeable channels in the apical membranes of alveolar type 1 and 2 cells followed by active extrusion of sodium into the interstitium by the basolateral Na+, K+-ATPase. Anions follow the cationic charge gradient and water follows the salt-induced osmotic
For the first time, researchers have developed a way to coax pluripotent stem cells into a specific type of mature lung cell called "alveolar epithelial type II cells" (AEC2s) and to correct a mutant gene whose dysfunction in these cells is known to cause respiratory distress in infants.. The findings, which appear in Cell Stem Cell, will make it easier to study lung diseases like neonatal respiratory distress, COPD and interstitial lung diseases, caused by dysfunctional AEC2s, which until now were unable to survive and multiply long enough in cell culture to be studied or genetically corrected.. AEC2s are the key cells that act to maintain lung air sacs in both infants and adults. They are responsible for responding to lung injury and secreting a substance called "pulmonary surfactant" that helps keep the lungs open. It is believed that dysfunction of these specific cells leads to the development of many poorly understood alveolar lung diseases (diseases of the air sacs in the lungs) and is the ...

Hepatocyte growth factor (HGF) is a cytokine with pleiotropic functions during wound healing and repair. Its anti-fibrotic effects were shown in animal models of lung fibrosis and linked to improved cellular survival and proliferation and reduced myofibroblast accumulation. HGF-elicited, pro-survival pathways have yet not been investigated in detail in lung epithelial cells. Based on literature, our study is focused on Bcl-xL, prosurvival protein involved in mitochondrial control of apoptosis.. Results: Western blot analysis of IPF lung homogenates revealed significantly increased expression of Bcl-xL when compared to donor lungs, and a similar observation was made in bleomycin versus saline treated murine lungs. In human IPF, much less in donor lungs, Bcl-xL protein is highly expressed in hyperplastic alveolar epithelial type II cells, basal cells, bronchial epithelial ciliated and non-ciliated cells. Furthermore, Bcl-xL expression co-localized with specific HGF receptor cMet. In vitro data ...

Peteranderl and colleagues define a paracrine communication between macrophages and type II alveolar epithelial cells during influenza infection where IFNα induces macrophage secretion of TRAIL that causes endocytosis of Na,K-ATPase by the alveolar epithelium. This reduction of Na,K-ATPase expression decreases alveolar fluid clearance, which in turn leads to pulmonary edema. Inhibition of the TRAIL signaling pathway has been shown to improve lung injury after influenza infection, and future studies will be needed to determine if blocking this pathway is a viable option in the treatment of ARDS.. ...

As physiologic and autopsy evidence suggests that peripheral airways and parenchyma are involved in asthma, we hypothesized that significant alveolar tissue inflammation is present in patients with stable, chronic asthma. Eleven patients with nocturnal asthma (NA) and 10 patients with non-nocturnal asthma (NNA) were studied. Each subject underwent two bronchoscopies with proximal airway endobronchial and distal alveolar tissue transbronchial biopsy in a random order at 4:00 P.M. and 4:00 A.M. Morphometric analysis was used to determine the number per volume (Nv) of inflammatory cells. Between-group comparisons showed that the Nv of eosinophils was greater in the NA alveolar tissue 4:00 A.M. compared with the subjects with NNA (40.2 x 10(3) [26.4-57.1 x 10(3), IQ] versus 15.7 x 10(3) [2.1-35.2 x 10(3), IQ], p = 0.05). In regard to the airway biopsies, no difference in the inflammatory and epithelial cells between the two groups was seen at either time. The NA group exhibited greater eosinophils ...
Background: The thickness and composition of the surface liquid lining the human lungs are maintained by a balance between epithelial secretion and absorption of ions and water. An understanding of epithelial transport pathways and the factors that regulate them will provide insight into the development of conditions such as lung edema and guide the development of treatment modalities. Here we report on the development and characterisation of a cell culture model of the alveolar epithelium that will be useful for investigating the components of epithelial transport pathways and interpreting molecular mechanisms involved in transport related diseases. Methods: An in vitro cell culture model was developed using human alveolar epithelial cell lines NCI-H441 and A549 cultured with the apical surface exposed to air (air-medium) or covered by nutrient medium (medium-medium). Cell monolayer was presented by visualizing cell morphology under microscope. Transepithelial electrical resistance, potential

Bacterial and parasitic intracellular pathogens or their secreted products have been shown to induce host cell transcriptional responses, which may benefit the host, favour the microorganism or be unrelated to the infection. In most instances, however, it is not known if the host cell nucleus is proximately required for the development of an intracellular infection. This information can be obtained by the infection of artificially enucleated host cells (cytoplasts). This model, although rather extensively used in studies of viral infection, has only been applied to few bacterial pathogens, which do not include Mycobacterium spp. Here, we investigate the internalization, phagosome biogenesis and survival of M. smegmatis in enucleated type II alveolar epithelial cells. Cytoplasts were infected with M. smegmatis, but the percentage of infection was significantly lower than that of nucleated cells. Scanning electron microscopy indicated that in both cells and cytoplasts, bacteria were internalized ...
Bovine tuberculosis (BTB) is a zoonosis which infects livestock and wildlife. While BTB has been largely eliminated from many countries, the control of Mycobacterium bovis (the bacteria that causes BTB) has proved problematic in large parts of Great Britain. If control doesnt improve, the projected economic burden of the disease could reach £1 billion in the next decade.. Surrey researchers have won NC3Rs funding to produce an in vitro tissue culture model of the cow lung, with an air-liquid interface that recreates the fundamental elements of the bovine pulmonary alveolus (the small air spaces in the lungs where carbon dioxide leaves the blood and oxygen enters it).. The model will allow the team to study what happens when a bovine lung is infected with virulent mycobacteria. Through collaboration with the bovine TB research group at the Animal & Plant Health Agency, the model will be used to test whether successful vaccines exert their effect at the very earliest stages of infection, when ...
The main function of the lungs is gas exchange between blood and the air we breathe. The work of the lungs, carbon dioxide is removed from the blood and the inspired oxygen enters the bloodstream. Right lung has three lobes, whereas left lung is divided into two lobes and a smaller structure called the lingula which is equivalent to the middle lobe. Major airways into the lungs are the bronchi, resulting in the trachea. Bronchi branch into progressively smaller airways called bronchiole. They end in small bags known as pulmonary alveoli. The wafers are exchanged gas itself. Lungs and chest wall are covered with a thin layer of tissue called pleura ...
Physiological changes in postnatal and aging lung are associated with a variety of microscopic changes in the lung, especially the alveolar lung tissue, both in the interstitial and epithelial component. Interstitial tissue of the lung will increase in thickness that is supposed to be due to changes in fiber composition, particularly collagen. However, the exact changes are still under debate and the underlying process is still unclear. The epithelial component that experiences changes is type II alveolar cells or pneumocyte II (surfactant producing cells). The ratio of pneumocyte II against pneumocyte I is expected to decline with age. This decrease will certainly affect their function in maintaining pulmonary surfactant supply. To maintain normal vital functions and synthesis of surfactant, lung tissue is also dependent on the availability of glucose because glucose is the fundamental building blocks of glycerol backbone of surfactant. In the aging process, accumulation of glycogen in the brain,
An oxygenator or artificial lung adds oxygen to the patients blood and removes carbon dioxide.. In open heart surgery, a heart-lung-machine is used for temporary replacement of the functions of both the heart and the lungs. This is necessary to enable the surgeon to perform the complicated surgical procedure in a motionless field. Both heart and lungs are rested during surgery. The oxygenator with membranes inside is the main element in the heart-lung-machine, responsible for gas exchange.. In intensive care and interventional pneumology, innovative artifical lungs provide extracorporeal removal of carbon dioxide and oxygen enrichment of the blood. This gives the human lungs time to heal. Similar to heart surgery, special membranes in the membrane ventilator assume the fuction of the pulmonary alveoli.. In both applications, a heat exchanger is often used. As large volumes of blood are channeled outside the patients body, temperature fluctuations may easily occur. The heat exchanger allows ...
There are four different types of tissue. They are; nerve, epithelial, connective, and muscle. The nerve tissue is made up of neurons that receive and transmit electrical impulses, this is their function. There are several different types of epithelial tissue. First there is simple squamous epithelium tissue. This is a single layer of cells that is in the lining of blood vessels, the lining of the pulmonary alveoli, and the Bowmans capsule in the kidneys. The function of this tissue is to separate blood from the fluid in tissues and to separate air from fluids in tissues and to filter substances from blood to form urine. The next type of epithelial tissue is stratified squamous epithelium. This is a tissue composed of two or more layers and the cells tend to be cuboidal. This type of tissue is found in the epidermis of the skin and the linings of the mouth, pharynx, esophagus and anus. The function of this tissue is to protect and secrete. Transitional epithelium is the next type of tissue and ...

My research focuses on elucidating the mechanism(s) of cell death and survival of primary alveolar epithelial cells and lung fibroblasts in response to the extracellular matrix associated signaling molecule, CCN1/Cyr61. CCN1/Cyr61 is an extracellular matrix (ECM)-associated signaling molecule that functions to promote cell adhesion, migration, survival and differentiation in the context of vascular development. Most recently we have shown that CCN1/Cyr61 can also modulate cell death in certain cells and can promote cell death in response to TNFa. In the context of the lung, I have found that CCN1/Cyr61 together with TNFa causes apoptosis of alveolar epithelial cells and lung fibroblasts. Because CCN1/Cyr61 has been shown to be induced in the lungs of patients with COPD and ARDS, I hypothesize that CCN1/Cyr61, together with inflammatory mediators such as TNFa causes cell death of primary lung cells in vivo, thus contributing to lung injury. I have also found that CCN1/Cyr61 functional knock-out ...

Blood vessel and alveoli in lung tissue. Coloured scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of a section through a lung, showing red blood cells (round, centre) in a tiny blood vessel (centre) surrounded by alveoli (large spaces). Alveoli are the site of gaseous exchange in the lungs, where oxygen is taken up by the red blood cells and carbon dioxide released for exhalation out of the body. The alveolar walls are lined with a one-cell thick layer of epithelium that oxygen must pass through to reach the blood. - Stock Image C023/4110
Coronaviruses are enveloped viruses with a positive-sense single-stranded RNA genome and a nucleocapsid of helical symmetry.1) Coronaviruses cause respiratory tract infections in humans, with most severe cases triggered by SARS, MERS, and, recently, COVID-19 (while the disease is named COVID-19, the virus that causes it was named SARS-CoV-2).2) The lungs are the organs most affected by COVID-19 because the virus (using a special surface glycoprotein) accesses host cells via the enzyme ACE2, which is most abundant in the type II alveolar cells of the lungs.3) Some of the trends in anti-SARS-CoV-2 agent development include the search for the viral proteases 3CLpro or PLpro inhibitors, viral protein expression inhibitors, viral entry to host cells inhibitors, as well as inhibitors of viral replication.4) ...
Lung cancer. Scanning electron micrograph of cancer cells proliferating inside air sacs (alveoli) in a human lung. These cells are part of an adenocarcinoma, a malignant tumour derived from glandular epithelial tissue. Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths in men and the second most common cause in woman (after breast cancer). Fewer than 10% of patients survive for five years after diagnosis. The cause of the disease is not always clear; although cigarette smoking is known to cause other forms of lung cancer, such as squamous cell carcinoma, the link between tobacco and adenocarcinoma remains unproven.

In the lung, a thin film of airway surface liquid lines the air-facing surface of the lungs. The conducting airways are lined with a mucus gel-aqueous sol complex of up to 100 microns in depth called air surface liquid (ASL) whilst the alveolar regions are lined with a complex of alveolar subphase fluid (AVSF) and pulmonary surfactant [1]. ASL pH is acidic compared to blood pH Mouse monoclonal to MPS1 and in healthy humans ASL has been recorded as 6.6 using a bronchoscopically-deployed pH electrode [2]. In preclinical models, the ASL pH has been measured to be between 6.8 and 7.1 [3] and has also been shown to be responsive to changes to blood pH as well as to apical challenges of acid ...
The alveolus is a small, balloon like sac at the end of the small air passages in the lungs (the bronchiole).

We have identified in this study the fundamental importance of the transcription factor FoxM1 expressed in alveolar type II cells in the mechanism of alveolar epithelial barrier repair after PA-induced lung injury. We used PA because it induces alveolar injury similar to that encountered in pneumonia (Gray and Kreger, 1979; Sadikot et al., 2006). We showed that type II cell-specific disruption of FoxM1 markedly delayed the recovery of alveolar barrier function as indicated by prolonged neutrophil influx and increased BAL protein concentration. There was a persistent alveolar barrier defect in FoxM1 mutants caused by defective type II cell proliferation and trans-differentiation into type I cells.. Although type I cells comprise ∼95% of the alveolar surface area, studies have shown that type II cells mediate the regeneration of type I alveolar cells and restoration of barrier function after alveolar injury (Evans et al., 1973, 1975). Type II cells after injury thus function as progenitor cells ...
