Properties of an acid phosphatase in pulmonary surfactant

Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America

Abstract

Lung surfactant, a lipid-protein complex purified from dog lungs, contains a highly active phosphomonoesterase associated with it. This phosphatase is quite specific for the hydrolysis of phosphatidic acid and 1-acyl-2-lysophosphatidic acid. The enzyme possesses many of the characterist...read more
