To further investigate the potential function of Foxa2 in lung development, Zhou and colleagues (133) used the SFTPC promoter to ectopically express the transcription factor in the distal epithelium. The resulting phenotype showed disrupted airway branching and vasculogenesis, as well as arrested differentiation of respiratory epithelial cells. A conditional knockout for Foxa2 has been generated that demonstrates that Foxa2 is required for alveolarization and differentiation; however, no branching defects were evident (134).

5 days after conception. This is the same time-frame in which lung formation starts, and therefore no insight was provided into pulmonary development. However, these mice suffered from severe defects in vasculogenesis, which suggests that lung formation, if it did start, would succumb to the same defect (189). The Flt1 null mouse has also been generated and suffers a similar 29 I LUNG DEVELOPMENT early embryonic death, showing abnormal vascular channels, most likely due to failure to regulate normal endothelial cell interactions during development (190).

Nos3 transcripts were detected as early on as 13 dpc in the developing mouse lung, with expression levels increasing towards birth and located to both the airway epithelial and vascular endothelial cells (208). Mice which carry a homozygous Nos3 null mutation have been generated and many of the null mutants show signs of severe respiratory distress at birth. Han and colleagues (208) also demonstrated that these lungs exhibit thicker septa, vascular fragility, misalignment of the pulmonary veins, and a severe reduction of distal arterioles, culminating in a lack of vascularized gas-exchange surface.
