  • FunctionPulmonary surfactant associated proteins promote alveolar stability by lowering the surface tension at the air-liquid interface in the peripheral air spaces.
  • Involvement in diseaseDefects in SFTPC are the cause of pulmonary surfactant metabolism dysfunction type 2 (SMDP2) [MIM:610913]; also called pulmonary alveolar proteinosis due to surfactant protein C deficiency. A rare disease associated with progressive respiratory insufficiency and lung disease with a variable clinical course, due to impaired surfactant homeostasis. It is characterized by alveolar filling with floccular material that stains positive using the periodic acid-Schiff method and is derived from surfactant phospholipids and protein components. Excessive lipoproteins accumulation in the alveoli results in severe respiratory distress.
    Genetic variations in SFTPC are a cause of susceptibility to respiratory distress syndrome in premature infants (RDS) [MIM:267450]; also known as RDS in prematurity. RDS is a lung disease affecting usually premature newborn infants. It is characterized by deficient gas exchange, diffuse atelectasis, high-permeability lung edema and fibrin-rich alveolar deposits called 'hyaline membranes'.

  • ab40879 staining Prosurfactant Protein C in A549 cells from Human lung tissue by ICC/IF (Immunocytochemistry/immunofluorescence). Cells were incubated with primary antibody (1/250). A FITC-conjugated anti-rabbit (1/200) was used as the secondary antibody. DAPI was used to detect the nucleus of the cells.

  • Adult mouse lung was embedded in paraffin and stained with anti-N terminal proSP-C rabbit serum ab40879 (1/2000 dilution).
