A pulmonary surfactant associated protein that plays a role in alveolar stability by lowering the surface tension at the air-liquid interface.

Pulmonary surfactant-associated protein C is one of the most hydrophobic peptides yet isolated and contains an alpha-helical domain with a central poly-valine segment that binds to phospholipid bilayers.
