Term Detail
MP term:increased number of pulmonary neuroendocrine bodies
Synonym: increased NEBs
Synonym: increased pulmonary neuroepithelial body number
MP id: MP:0010919
Definition: greater number of the corpuscular, organoid structures composed of PNECs, found as distinctive innervated clusters only within intrapulmonary airways, where they appear concentrated at airway branch points; NEBs reach from the basement membrane to the airway lumen and are thought to function as oxygen sensors
Number of paths to term: 2
