AEC II are assumed to play a central role in alveolar repair processes after injury by trans-differentiation into AEC I. ... trans-differentiation of existing AEC II into AEC I might occur fast and precedes AEC II proliferation peaking at 48a96h post injury. ... matrix associated proteins BIG-H3, and IGF-1, which provide signals for tissue repair and proliferation (Gordon, 2003). ... Tight junctions are highly dynamic structures, whose degree of sealing varies in response to external stimuli (e.g., anbsp;...
