Counteracting the inhibitory effect of proteins towards lung surfactant substitutes: a fluorocarbon gas helps displace albumin at the air/water interface

Author affiliations

Abstract

Perfluorohexane gas lowers the kinetic barrier that opposes the displacement of albumin by dipalmitoylphosphatidylcholine at the air/water interface submitted to sinusoidal oscillations at frequencies in the range of those encountered in respiration.
