Human SFTPA1, 2 and 3 produces the equivalent pulmonary surfactant-associated proteins A1, A2 and A3. Their function is to bind surfactant phospholipids and contribute to lowering the surface tension at the air-liquid interface in the alveoli (White et al. 1985, Flores et al. 1986, Schicht et al. 2014). Surfactant proteins A and D function as innate immunity molecules and inflammatory mediators in the lung (Silveyra & Floros 2013). Transcription factor GATA-6 (GATA6) can bind to a cis-acting element in the surfactant protein A (SFTPA) gene promoter, activating the transcriptional activity of the gene (Bruno et al. 2000). The final processed products for SFTPA1 and 2 are six sets of trimers (Haagsman et al. 1989).
