Possible Interaction: Pulmonary Surfactants and Zinc Cation

Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

The antimicrobial activity of surfactant-associated anionic peptides (SAAPs), which are isolated from the ovine pulmonary surfactant and are selective against the ovine pathogen Mannheimia haemolytica, is strongly enhanced in the presence of Zn(II) ions.
