Fig. 2

Association of age and telomere length in AT2 cells of normal lung tissue by fluorescent in situ hybridization. Telomere length determination by FISH on normal lung tissue of (a) a 19-year old and (b) an 83-year old donor showed (c) significantly higher telomere length in AT2 cells of the youngest subject (p = 0.009). The fluorecent labelling in the a and b panel stands for green: proSPC (AT2 cells), red: telomere probe, blue: DAPI. Data are presented as boxplots and every dot represents one cell
