An ultramicrofluorometric technique was used to analyse the nutrient composition of mouse oviduct fluid. The concentrations of pyruvate, glucose and lactate in the vicinity of the cumulus mass were 0.37, 3.40 and 4.79 mM respectively. In the absence of cumulus cells, the concentration of pyruvate was significantly reduced, to 0.14 mM, while the(More)
N-formylmethionyl (F-Met) peptides, when added alone to macrophages or polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMN), were found to induce a chemiluminescent response of shorter duration than that produced by the commonly employed particulate stimulant, zymosan. The cellular nature of F-Met peptide-induced chemiluminescence was indicated by its dependence on cell(More)
