Lung cells can regenerate using another type of lung cell, according to research published in Nature Communications.
Researchers from the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine used mouse models in order to understand the plasticity of differentiated cells in adult tissues undergoing repair. The investigators showed that 2 types of cells within the alveoli, the part of the lung that exchanges the lung, can change into each other in the right set of circumstances.
