Sample text

The cells are roughly flask-shaped, with an apical protrusion found between the columnar cells extending to the airway surface. They express immunohistochemical neural markers such as chromogranin and synaptophysin, in addition to peptide hormones such as substance P, calcitonin, and gastrin-releasing peptide. â•… (Courtesy Dr. ) The alveolus is the main gas exchange area of the lung and is composed of a thin epithelial layer supported by its basement membrane, a capillary endothelium supported by its own basement membrane, and the interstitium between the two basement membranes (Figures 1-7 and 1-e9).

Unfolded protein response (UPR): In the resting endoplasmic reticulum, the chaperone BiP holds the stress-signaling molecules PERK, IRE1, and ATF6 inactive. When proteins misfold in the endoplasmic reticulum, they sequester BiP (purple). This enables PERK, IRE1, and ATF6 to become active and signal to the cytosol. PERK phosphorylates a cytosolic translation initiation factor eIF2α, thereby halting most protein synthesis. In parallel, the translation of a subset of proteins increases. These include the transcription factor ATF4, which transactivates genes of the integrated stress response (ISR).

The cytoplasm contains sparse organelles. Type I cells form by mitotic division and transformation of type II cells. The normal ratio of type I to type II cells is 1:2. Type II epithelial cells have a granular appearance and, in humans, are noted to protrude into the alveolar space (Figure 1-10). They have abundant mitochondria, endoplasmic reticulum, and a large Golgi apparatus, in addition to conspicuous secretory granules, called lamellar bodies, which are composed of surfactant. Surfactant is approximately 90% lipid in nature, the major portion of which is phosphatidylcholine; surfactant apoproteins A, B, C, and D make up the remainder.
