SP-A acts as a pulmonary surfactant binding protein and is secreted by type II pneumonocyte. When the lung is damaged, the level of SP-A is increased through permeability augmented alveolus-capillary membrane and released to blood circulation.
In vitro experiments showed that chenodeoxycholic acids could also disrupt cellular membranes in the alveoli, increasing cationic permeability and intracellular [Ca.sup.2+] concentration, leading to overloading of [Ca.sup.2+] in cells, and causing injury to type II pneumonocyte [13].
Single step method was applied for extracting total RNA from pneumonocytes with acid guanidinium thiocyanate-phenol-chloroform extraction.
