Baseline elastic properties of the respiratory system in infected males. Pressure-volume (PV) loops for male SP-A1 (6A2, 6A4), SP-A2 (1A0, 1A3), SP-A1/SP-A2 (6A2/1A0, co-ex), and SP-A (KO) mice (a). Parameter A from the exponential function used to fit the deflation limb of each PV loop [49], which provides an estimate of the inspiratory capacity shown in (b), static compliance (Cst) shown in (c), the shape constant k shown in (d), and the area between the PV loop is shown in (e). Data are expressed as means ± SD (4 replicates per group). *p < 0.05
