Phenotype Image Detail
Caption Morphogenesis of lung epithelium in Abca3tm1Nina/Abca3tm1Nina mice. A, a pair of newborn littermates, wild-type (+/+, right) and Abca3tm1Nina/Abca3tm1Nina (-/-, left). The isolated lung tissue in mutant mice was congested compared with that in wild-type mice. B, body weight and wet lung tissue weight of wild-type and mutant mice. Each open circle represents a single pup. The numbers in parentheses at the bottom represent total numbers of pups and wet lungs weighed. The bracketed numbers at top represents average weight. The body weight of mutant mice (n=22) was similar to that of wild-type mice (n=26) at birth. However, the wet lung weight of mutant mice (n=26) was significantly increased compared with that of wild-type mice (n=30). N.S., not significant; *, p<0.01. C-F, hematoxylin and eosin stained histological sections of the lung tissue in wild-type (C and E) and mutant (D and F) littermates. Severe atelectasis, pulmonary congestion, reduced septation, thickened mesenchyme, and columnar epithelium lining the peripheral saccules were observed in the mutant lung. Scale bars: 200 um in C and D; 50 um in E and F. G-I, consistent with the observed immaturity in the mutant lung, periodic acid-Schiff (PAS) staining demonstrated increased glycogen content in the bronchiolar epithelium of mutant mice (H and I) compared with control littermates (G). Scale bars: 50 um in G and H; 25 um in I.
