Mouse anti Porcine surfactant protein D antibody, clone 1.7 detects porcine surfactant protein D (pSP-D), a ~138 kDa member of the collectin family of proteins. Surfactant protein D is thought to play a significant role in the innate immune response against microorganisms within the lungs and at other mucosal surfaces. SP-D is a multifunctional protein which binds selectively to saccharides and lipids on microbial surfaces promoting antimicrobial responses and regulating surfactant lipid homeostasis. SP-D expression is induced in lung surfactant in response to aerogenous bacterial infection, and upon binding to bacteria, promotes phagocytosis and antigen presentation by dendritic cells. Recent studies suggest that pSP-D could serve as a serum biomarker specific for bronchopneumonia in pigs.
