  • To study the relation between normal and abnormal alveolar type 2 cells and lung repair after injury, and to gain insight into the defect responsible for the giant lamellar bodies in type 2 cells of the beige mouse (an animal model of the Chediak-Higashi syndrome), we produced lung injury with a single injection of butylated hydroxytoluene (BHT) [28].
