Type II cells isolated from the rat lung were maintained in culture for 8 days. The activity of alkaline phosphatase and lectin binding properties were studied. The alkaline phosphatase activity and the number of lamellar bodies were continually decreasing during the studied time period. The profile of lectin binding (Maclura pomifera and Ricinus communis) did not change during the cultivation.
