    • CD44(high) alveolar type II cells show stem cell properties during steady-state alveolar homeostasis 

      Chen, Q; Kumar, VS; Finn, J; Jiang, DH; Liang, JR; Zhao, YY; Liu, YR (American Physiological Society, 2017-07)
      The alveolar epithelium is composed of type I cells covering most of the gas-blood exchange surface and type II cells secreting surfactant that lowers surface tension of alveoli to prevent alveolar collapse. Here, we have ...
    • Pseudomonas aeruginosa induced lung injury model. 

      Suresh Kumar, V.; Sadikot, R.T.; Purcell, J.E.; Malik, A.B.; Liu, Y. (Journal of Visualized Experiments, 2014-10-29)
      In order to study human acute lung injury and pneumonia, it is important to develop animal models to mimic various pathological features of this disease. Here we have developed a mouse lung injury model by intra-tracheal ...
