Supplementary material from "Evolution and mechanics of mixed phospholipid fibrinogen monolayers"

Ian Williams & Todd M. Squires
All mammals depend on lung surfactant (LS) to reduce surface tension at the alveolar interface and facilitate respiration. The inactivation of LS in acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) is generally accompanied by elevated levels of fibrinogen and other blood plasma proteins in the alveolar space. Motivated by the mechanical role fibrinogen may play in LS inactivation, we measure the interfacial rheology of mixed monolayers of fibrinogen and dipalmitoylphosphatidylcholine (DPPC), the main constituent of LS, and...
