Pulmonary surfactant isolated from bronchoalveolar lavage fluid of rat lung contained a high content of surfactant protein A (SP-A) in starved for 2 days compared to fed controls, but this phenomena returned to baseline following more than 4 days starvation. As determined by immunoperoxidase staining of lung sections using SP-A antibody, SP-A could be consistently observed in nonciliated bronchiolar (Clara) cells, alveolar type II cells and some alveolar macrophages (AM). Fc receptor-mediated… CONTINUE READING
