Neonatal hyperoxia leads to hypoalveologenesis at P8. a, b The lungs of the normoxia group at P8 (group 1) show normal developed alveoli. c, d The lungs from the hyperoxia group (group 2) at P8 after exposure to 85% oxygen from P0 to P8 reveal a significant hypoalveologenesis with dilated alveoli and increased airspace macroscopically due to disturbed secondary septa formation. H&E. e, f Immunofluorescence staining on P8 comparing normoxia (e, group 1) versus hyperoxia (f, group 2) show higher expression after hyperoxia. a, c × 100; bf × 400
