    Club cells form lung adenocarcinomas and maintain the alveoli of adult mice

    Magda Spella et al.
    Airway cells are required for the maintenance of the adult mouse lung and for carcinogen-induced lung adenocarcinoma development, and are thus marked therapeutic targets.

    Stochastic homeostasis in human airway epithelium is achieved by neutral competition of basal cell progenitors

    Vitor H Teixeira et al.
    Cell replenishment within the airways is governed by the random division of a population of basal progenitor cells, in a process that is accelerated in smokers.

    Jagged and Delta-like ligands control distinct events during airway progenitor cell differentiation

    Maria R Stupnikov et al.
    Notch ligands from the Delta and Jagged families have distinct roles in epithelial progenitor cell fate of extrapulmonary and intrapulmonary airways and differentially restrict expansion of the neuroendocrine microenvironment.

    Multipotent versus differentiated cell fate selection in the developing Drosophila airways

    Ryo Matsuda et al.
    A genetic framework that balances the numbers of multipotent precursors and differentiated cells in the developing airways of Drosophila is presented.

    Coupling chemosensory array formation and localization

    Alejandra Alvarado et al.
    Formation and cell pole-localization of chemotactic signaling-arrays is a coupled process mediated by ParP, which drives localized array-assembly and regulates the localization-dynamics of its network constituents.

    SARS-CoV-2 entry into human airway organoids is serine protease-mediated and facilitated by the multibasic cleavage site

    Anna Z Mykytyn et al.
    Whereas SARS-CoV-2 utilizes cathepsins to enter most cell lines, human airway organoids revealed that entry into relevant cells is dependent on serine proteases, which can be targeted for treatment.

    Chloride channels regulate differentiation and barrier functions of the mammalian airway

    Mu He et al.
    The chloride channel Ano1/Tmem16a plays an essential and non-redundant role in the developing airway by inhibiting mucus cell hyperplasia and promoting proper immune function of the airway mucosal barrier.

    Identification of scavenger receptor B1 as the airway microfold cell receptor for Mycobacterium tuberculosis

    Haaris S Khan et al.
    Mycobacterium tuberculosis penetrates the airway mucosa through M cells via the mycobacterial virulence factor EsxA and the host M cell surface receptor scavenger receptor B1.

    Panproteome-wide analysis of antibody responses to whole cell pneumococcal vaccination

    Joseph J Campo et al.
    Panproteome array analysis of antibody responses to a pneumococcal whole cell vaccine reveals consistent induction of immune responses to multiple surface proteins, despite individuals' unique pre-existing antibody profiles.

    The Drosophila formin Fhos is a primary mediator of sarcomeric thin-filament array assembly

    Arkadi Shwartz et al.
    Actin is incorporated into the thin-filament arrays of skeletal muscle sarcomeres in discrete steps, and Fhos, the Drosophila homolog of FHOD-family formins, is an essential player in the process.
