Pulmonary Neuroendocrine Cells Sense Succinate to Stimulate Myoepithelial Cell Contraction

Scientists discovered that pulmonary neuroendocrine cells sense succinate, an inflammatory molecule in liquid lining the airway surface. Indications showed that succinate caused short-range ATP signals, contracting the myoepithelial cells wrapped around airway submucosal glands.
