Previous studies with U937 cells, a human monocyte cell line, have shown that the activity of cyclic nucleotide phosphodiesterase 4 (PDE4) is increased by agents that elevate cyclic AMP content. The(More)
Human peripheral blood monocytes were treated for 4 h with a combination of the beta-agonist salbutamol (3 microM) and the low-Km cAMP-specific phosphodiesterase (PDE4) inhibitor rolipram (30 microM)(More)
