Abstract

This chapter focuses on the epithelium of the distal conducting airways, or bronchioles, with emphasis on the area of transition between conducting airways and the gas-exchange area. The bronchiolar region has a substantial variation from one species of mammal to the next. This variability includes the microenvironment in which epithelial cells are found, particularly the zone of transition between bronchiolar, non-gas exchange regions and the alveolar gas-exchange regions. There is also considerable interspecies variability in the general composition of the bronchiolar epithelium. The principal alterations involve the distribution, number, and percentage of the population that is nonciliated cells. In addition, there is substantial variability in the composition and differentiated expression of the nonciliated epithelial population in this region.
