Content of Dipalmitoyl Phosphatidylcholine in Lung Surfactant: Ramifications for Surface Activity

Abstract

The content of dipalmitoyl phosphatidylcholine (DPPC) in the phosphatidylcholine (PC) fraction of calf lung surfactant extract (CLSE) is measured by gas chromatography (GC) and estimated from the widely used osmium tetroxide assay for disaturated phosphatidylcholine (DSPC). The surface-active properties of model phospholipid/apoprotein surfactants with… (More)
