Example text

This technique offers a satisfactory way of preparing lung for light microscopy. For ultrastructural studies Dr Meyrick has developed a method that comes close to this in its effect on vessel distension (Meyrick & Reid 1979a). With the veins occluded the trachea and pulmonary artery are simultaneously injected with glutaraldehyde. The effect is to force the red blood cells into the veins and this, as well as position and structure, allows small arteries to be distinguished from veins. In the rat, the species in which we have mainly studied the effect of hypoxia, the pulmonary artery at the hilum is muscular, as are its large branches.

We don’t know if these lung cells are from capillaries or larger vessels, of course. Simionescu: They are probably a mixed population predominantly derived from vessels larger than capillaries. Perfused collagenase loosens endothelial cells along the lung vasculature. Endothelial cells are about 20 pm in length. Freed from their basement membrane, not too many of them will be able to pass through 5-10 pm-diameter capillaries; so the majority of cells obtained in this way probably originate from large vessels.

Hormones such as vasopressin and oxytocin pass freely through the lungs towards their target cells. CONCLUSIONS Lungs are provided with the necessary cellular constituents for fulfilling their respiratory and metabolic functions. Lung cells have the biochemical and structural equipment to meet the requirement of these demanding functions. As a result of their number, location and enzymic equipment the endothelial cells of lung capillaries have a direct influence on the maintenance of blood homeostasis.
