Page 8, first paragraph, first sentence contains a split infinitive; it should read, "To show abnormalities more clearly in the development of type I pneumonocytes…".
Page 11, third paragraph, the word "defects" is missing, which alters the nuance, making this sentence confusing. The sentence should read: "The absence of branching defects may be because we analyzed heterozygous mutants in which sufficient levels of native protein…".
