[3H]phosphatidylcholine secretion from cultured type II cells isolated from SD or LEC rats. The cells were infected with Ad-lacZ or Ad-Rab38 and radiolabeled with [3H]choline. Secretion (%) was calculated as [3H]PC activity in 100 × supernatant/(supernatant + cell). a Basal secretion (%) was without an agonist. b Agonist-induced secretion value was normalized by basal secretion value in each experiment group, i.e. fold of the basal secretion value. *P < 0.05, **P < 0.01. n = 6 of separate experiments performed in duplicate dishes
