There are 495026 EST sequences in respiratory system.

   The respiratory system's function is to allow gas exchange to all parts of the body.
The space between the alveoli and the capillaries, the anatomy or structure of the
exchange system, and the precise physiological uses of the exchanged gases vary depending
on the organism. 

   In humans and other mammals, for example, the anatomical features of the respiratory
system include airways, lungs, and the respiratory muscles. Molecules of oxygen and carbon
dioxide are passively exchanged, by diffusion, between the gaseous external environment
and the blood. This exchange process occurs in the alveolar region of the lungs.
