Airway Epithelial Cells and Smoke Exposure in COPD Research

Lung/Airway Cells

Small Airway Epithelial Cells The airway is lined by a layer of epithelial cells with multiple functions. In addition to providing a protective barrier function, the airway epithelium also secretes mucus and is the primary target of respiratory…

Senescence of Airway Epithelial Cells in Asthma

Lung/Airway Cells

Lung and Airway Cells: First-Line Barriers to the Outside World Breathing air is something we do without thinking. But while we go about our day, our respiratory systems are hard at work extracting oxygen from the air and…

New Diseased Cell Additions to Lung and Airway Catalog

Lung/Airway Cells

The Airway: More Than Just Oxygen Exchange When air is inhaled, it travels through the airway to the lungs, where the oxygen is exchanged for carbon dioxide. A single layer of epithelial cells lines the airway, providing a…

Airway Epithelial Cells: Polarized Barrier Layer and the Latest Research

Lung/Airway Cells

Epithelial cells line many of the hollow organs in our bodies. A single layer of epithelium is composed of tightly packed individual epithelial cells that are connected to each other by protein complexes called tight junctions. Epithelia act…

Airway Epithelium: Advances in Cell Culture Techniques Help Mimic this Complex Environment

Lung/Airway Cells

The Airway Epithelium and Air-Liquid Interface Culture A single layer of epithelial cells lines many of our internal organs, including the airway. The airway epithelium is composed of multiple differentiated cell types that form a barrier against pathogens…

Using Lifeline® Lung-Airway Cells to Study Viral Infection

Lung/Airway Cells

The Lung-Airway Epithelium When air enters the respiratory system, it travels through the trachea and into one of the two bronchi, which lead to either lung as they branch into bronchioles. Finally, in the lung, the bronchioles terminate…

The Airway Epithelium: Guardian Against Respiratory Infection

Lung/Airway Cells

Like many organs, the airway is lined by a single layer of epithelial cells that form the barrier between the external and internal environments. The epithelium is the first line of defense against inhaled pathogens, particularly respiratory viruses…

The Airway Epithelium: Barrier Against Foreign Pathogens

Lung/Airway Cells

The human airway (including the trachea and bronchi) is lined by a single layer epithelium that serves as the interface between the external and internal environments. It also provides a physical barrier and mucous layer to protect against…

The Respiratory System and the latest Human Airway Cells Research

Lung/Airway Cells

  Where do Human Airway Cells Come From? Oxygenated air enters through the mouth or nose and passes into the trachea. The trachea branches into two bronchi, which lead to each lung. The bronchi divide into progressively smaller…

Research Studies with Primary Human Bronchial Epithelial Cells

Lung/Airway Cells

Research groups in the US recently studied two very different aspects of lung function, and they used Lifeline® airway cells to do it. Breathing is something we very much take for granted. Only when something goes wrong, such…
