Fig. 6

Surfactant protein B is decreased in the lamellar body fraction in Ad-Rab38-infected LEC rat lungs, whereas surfactant protein A is not altered. Fixed amounts of the lamellar body fractions (5 μg protein) were loaded onto SDS-PAGE and transferred to a nitrocellulose membrane. The same membrane was incubated twice with two different primary antibodies after being stripped of previous antibody complexes. a A representative result from three independent experiments, each with similar results. Densitometry of the Western blots was performed for SP-A (b) and SP-B (c). **P < 0.01, n = 3 rats
