PDGFRa+ cell analysis (Anne Perl)
Introduction. The role (and control) of fibroblast cell populations within the developing lung is not well understood. Here we explore PDGFRa+ fibroblast cells during lung development using PDGFRa+ GFP transgenic mice, with fluorescence imaging, RNA profiling & FACs analysis. From these analyses we are beginning to characterize specific cell populations and their interactions through development.
