The percentage of different epithelial cell
types found in the vaginal smears was similar (p> 0.05) between nulliparous and multiparous ewes (Table 2).
The use of basic and translational science approaches to study airway epithelial cell
function in COPD has provided us with novel insights into dysregulated innate immunity in COPD.
Conjunctival impression cytology and the morphology of epithelial cells
were observed in both groups of subjects.
hAELVi cells (2 x [10.sup.5] cells/[cm.sup.2]) were seeded on fibronectin (1% (v/v); Corning, USA) / collagen (1% (v/v); Sigma, Germany)-coated Transwell[R] polyester membranes (Corning 3460; growth area 1.12 [cm.sup.2]; pore size 0.4 [micro]m) under LCC, i.e., 500 [micro]l apical and 1.5 ml basolateral of a complex small airway epithelial cell
growth medium (SAGM, Lonza), supplemented with 1% (v/v) fetal bovine serum (FBS; Lifetechnologies, Germany) and 1% penicillin/streptomycin (P/S; 10,000 U/ml, Gibco Lifetechnologies, USA).
In addition, alternative strategies using immortalized or tumor AECII cell lines also fail to fully differentiate into alveolar epithelial cell
phenotypes that are seen in vivo (5).
The female reproductive tract (epithelial cell
specificity) is exposed to E2 effects, which influence processes associated with reproduction and immunity .
In addition, alveolar epithelial cells
(AECs) are the dominant cell type in alveolar sacs; the role of AECs in host defense of Mtb infection however has not been fully appreciated until the recently emerging evidence that AECs were also host targets of Mtb has been discovered.
The corneal basal epithelial cell
layer is seen at the center (a), paracentral (b), and limbal (c) regions of the cornea.
Individual intestinal epithelial cells
can survive and maintain their activity for several hours in tissue samples.
Nagaoka and coworkers (25) identified the decrease of E-cadherin levels by Western Blotting in an epithelial cell
line transfected with anti-miR-200a, a gene involved in the epithelial cell
differentiation and polarization.
Effect of lens epithelial cell
aspiration on postoperative capsulorhexis contraction with the use of the Acrysof intraocular lens: randomized clinical trial.
Detroit 562 (American Type culture collection; ATCC, Manassas, VA, USA) and NCI-H292 (ATCC, Manassas, VA, USA) epithelial cell
lines derived from pharynx and lung, respectively, were used.
