alveolarization

alveolarization

(al-vē'ō-lăr-i-zā'shŭn),
The opacification of groups of alveoli by a radiographic contrast material, as in bronchography, or after aspiration of foreign material .

Emerging evidence suggests that full maturation of the alveolus occurs during the alveolarization stage (PND 0-14) (Herriges and Morrisey 2014).
In most mammals with short gestation periods, such as rodents and lagomorphs, the birth occurs before the formation and maturaration of the alveoli in the lungs, so, in these species the alveolarization can be considered late and/or an postnatal event (PINKERTON & JOAD, 2000).

The researchers found that the intratracheal, rather than the intraperitoneal transplantation of human UCB-derived MSCs, significantly attenuated the hyperoxia-induced lung injury, such as decreased alveolarization and fibrosis.
In addition, there are signs of impaired alveolarization, such as thickened alveolar interstitial septae, a simplified alveolar pattern, and regenerative hyperplastic type II pneumocytes (1,2) (Figure 4).

In the second study, hyperoxia altered the development of neonatal rat lungs, inhibiting alveolarization and vascularization and promoting epithelial to mesenchymal transition and hyperplasia.
Alveolarization was evaluated measuring mean linear intercept, alveolar surface area, and the surface-to-volume ratio.
In the present study, we show that gestational but not early postnatal exposure of mice to secondhand cigarette smoke (SS) suppresses alveolarization, angiogenesis, and development of Clara and goblet cells without significant lung inflammation and that the SS-induced effects on alveolar architecture are irreversible.
Potential mechanisms of delayed effects include interference with highly conserved factors in developmental processes such as gene regulation, molecular signaling, and growth factors involved in branching morphogenesis and alveolarization.
