Basophils — Underestimated players in lung development

The adult lung consists of highly specialized cell types that are protected by a variety of immune cells. How these immune cells migrate to the lungs during development and after birth and influence each other is poorly understood. Using single cell sequencing methods, researchers from Israel and Austria discovered a hitherto unknown, fundamental mechanism: immune cells mainly known in the context of allergy play a crucial role in the development of macrophages in the lung.
