Abstract

We propose that lung morphogenesis and repair are characterized by complex cell-cell interactions of endodermal and mesodermal origin, leading to (or returning back to) an alveolar structure that can effectively exchange gases between the circulation and the alveolar space. We provide the developmental basis for cell/molecular control of lung development and disease, what is known about growth and transcription factors in normal and abnormal lung development, and how endodermal and mesodermal cell origins interact during lung development and disease. The global mechanisms that mediate mesenchymal-epithelial interactions and the plasticity of mesenchymal cells in normal lung development and remodeling provide a functional genomic model that may bring these concepts closer together. We present a synopsis followed by a vertical integration of the developmental and injury/repair mechanisms.
