Pulmonary surfactant-associated protein B is a protein that in humans is encoded by the SFTPB gene.[1][2][3]

Pulmonary surfactant-associated protein B' is a membrane protein which manufactures surfactant.

Humans and animals born with a congenital absence of SP-B suffer from intractable respiratory failure.
