Role of phospholipid lining on respiratory mucus clearance by cough.

Abstract

Phospholipid lining, present at the respiratory mucus-mucosa interface, may have an important role in the protective function of the airways by its abhesive properties and may also facilitate mucus transport. To mimic respiratory mucus-mucosa interface, monolayers of three different forms of phosphatidylglycerol (PG) have been deposited on glass slides by… (More)
