Effect of BMP-6 deficiency on lung function in mice. Lung function was determined in WT and BMP-6 KO mice under basal conditions. Resistance (a), elasticity (b), and compliance (c) of the entire compartment (airways, tissue, and chest wall). d Tissue damping, related to tissue resistance. e Tissue elasticity. f Static elasticity. g Total lung capacity. Representative PV loops of WT (blue) and BMP-6 KO (red) mice are shown in (h). Data are expressed as mean ± SEM (n = 8−10 animals/group; *P < 0.05, **P < 0.01, ***P < 0.001). Data shown are representative of two independent experiments
