Title: Control of pulmonary surfactant secretion : an evolutionary perspective / Philip Wood.
Author: Wood, Philip (Philip Gregory), 1967-
Issue Date: 1999
School/Discipline: Dept. of Physiology
Abstract: Attempts to construct an evolutionary overview of the regulation of surfactant secretion among the vertebrates. A detailed whole animal and in vitro study of the factors that control surfactant secretion and function in the central Australian agamid lizard Pogona vitticeps was undertaken. Type II pneumocytes were also isolated and cultured from Australian lungfish, North American bullfrogs and fat-tailed dunnarts.
