Neutral lipids induce critical behavior in interfacial monolayers of pulmonary surfactant.

Abstract

We have shown previously that lateral compression of pulmonary surfactant monolayers initially induces separation of two phases but that these remix when the films become more dense (1). In the studies reported here, we used fluorescence microscopy to examine the role of the different surfactant constituents in the remixing of the separated phases… (More)
