A novel procedure for preparing intact lamellar bodies from bovine 3 lung has been developed. The procedure consists of enzymatic digestion 4 of ground-lung tissue, with Nagarse, homogenization with a loosely-fit-ting pestle and then differential and density gradient separation of the various cellular fractions as the basis for selection of the lamellar body fraction.
