Elucidation of the structure and function of the hydrophobic surfactant protein (SP-B) and the SP-B gene has provided critical insight into surfactant homeostasis and control of respiratory epithelial cell gene expression. Surfactant protein B, in concert with surfactant protein A (SP-A), surfactant protein C (SP-C), and surfactant phospholipids, contributes to the structure and function of surfactant particles, determining surface activities and pathways by which surfactant phospholipids and… CONTINUE READING
