Phosphatidylcholine levels in Ad-Rab38-infected LEC rat lungs. Ad-lacZ or Ad-Rab38 recombinant adenovector was delivered into the left lungs by an endobronchial administration at 14 days prior to sacrifice. The left lungs were lavaged, homogenized, and lamellar body (LB) fractions were isolated. After lipid extraction, phosphatidylcholine levels were analyzed by two-dimensional thin layer chromatography. *P < 0.05, **P < 0.01 (n = 6 rats). Note the different magnitude of a vertical scale
