Figure 1

Allergen challenge of sensitized mice with Af induced a transient decrease in the BAL SP-A protein levels. (A) SP-A Western blots from two representative samples of BAL obtained 1, 6, 12, 24, 48 and 72 h after Af challenge. (B): SP-A protein from BAL (open circles) and lung tissue mRNA (closed circles); % of the naïve control values; n = 4–6. (C): SP-A protein levels measured 12 h after Af challenge Mean ± SEM of n = 8 each; ** p < 0.01 (Af/Af vs. Af/gly).
