Dipalmitoylphosphatidylcholine and cholesterol in monolayers spread from adsorbed films of pulmonary surfactant.

Abstract

Pulmonary surfactant forms a surface film that consists of a monolayer and a monolayer-associated reservoir. The extent to which surfactant components including the main component, dipalmitoylphosphatidylcholine (DPPC), are adsorbed into the monolayer, and how surfactant protein SP-A affects their adsorptions, is not clear. Transport of cholesterol to the… (More)
