Are they podoplanin positive cells (cells that tested positive for podoplanin)?

"… though it has been shown that podoplanin (PDPN+) cells analogous to mouse FRCs are found in human secondary lymphoid organs… " (

"Although rare, the few SFTPB+ observed in HLOs resemble AECII cells seen in the adult human lung, and PDPN+ cells resembled the elongated AECI cells in the human lung" "Few PDPN+ cells also showed elongated, squamous morphology seen in the adult lung." (

Thank you.

In this context, that nomenclature means "cells which express PDPN"
