Adrenergic and cholinergic regulation of lung surfactant secretion in the isolated perfused rat lung and in the alveolar type II cell in culture.

Abstract

The purpose of this study is to define the hormonal regulation of pulmonary surfactant secretion in two models, the isolated perfused rat lung and the isolated alveolar type II cell in culture. In the perfused lung, both cholinergic and adrenergic stimulation independently increased labeled disaturated phosphatidylcholine secretion, the major phospholipid… (More)
