Bronchial epithelial (EP) bridge brings EP islands together over time

Using various cellular imaging techniques on human tissue cultures, we identified two types of tubular, bronchial epithelial (EP) connections, up to a millimeter in length, designated EP bridges

Two EP islands connected by an EP bridge migrated towards each other, which reduced EP bridge length until the EP bridge disappeared as the two EP islands became one EP island in EPs/ECs over 7 h. Each frame was taken using a Nikon Diaphot inverted microscope with a 10x phase lens.

Time point for each frame is specified in the video. Scale bars: 50 µm.
