Pulmonary Neuroendocrine Cells: Sensors and Sentinels of the Lung.


Journal Article

Organisms have developed cellular "antennas" to sense, interpret, and integrate environmental stimuli. In a recent issue of Science, Sui et al. (2018) demonstrate that discrete clusters of pulmonary neuroendocrine cells in the lung can sense airborne allergens and relay signals to stimulate immune cells and induce tissue/organ-wide responses.
