Pulmonary surfactant has previously been shown to change during development, both in composition and function. Adult pinnipeds, unlike adult terrestrial mammals, have an altered lung physiology to cope with the high pressures associated with deep diving. Here, we investigated how surfactant composition and function develop in California sea lions (Zalophus(More)
BACKGROUND Airway surfactant is impaired in cystic fibrosis (CF) and associated with declines in pulmonary function. We hypothesized that surfactant dysfunction in CF is due to an excess of cholesterol with an interaction with oxidation. METHODS Surfactant was extracted from bronchial lavage fluid from children with CF and surface tension, and lipid(More)
