Hyperoxia exposure is a significant risk factor for the impaired alveolarization characteristic of bronchopulmonary dysplasia. Type II alveolar epithelial cells (AECIIs) may serve as "alveolar stem cells" to transdifferentiate into type I alveolar epithelial cells (AECIs). Here, we show that hyperoxia is capable of inducing transdifferentiation of AECIIs in premature ...

Laminin gamma2 chain is a subunit of the heterotrimeric basement membrane protein laminin-332 (alpha3beta3gamma2). The gamma2 chain is highly expressed by human cancers at the invasion fronts and this expression correlates with poor prognosis of the cancers. Our previous study showed that the gamma2 chain is expressed as a monomer ...

Macrophages, especially follicular dendritic cells, contribute to the pathogenesis of prion diseases by accumulating an abnormal isoform of prion protein (PrPSc), which is converted from the cellular isoform of prion protein (PrPC). As information on the function of PrPC in macrophages is limited, we have established a prion protein (PrP) ...
