Bovine alveolar macrophages (BAM) were harvested from nonsedated cattle, adhered to glass or plastic surfaces, and infected with parainfluenza-3 (PI-3) virus at a multiplicity of infection of 10. Control and PI-3 virus-infected BAM were compared at 24-hour intervals up to 168 hours for their ability to phagocytize antibody-coated sheep erythrocytes (EAC)(More)
Virus infection of alveolar macrophages both in vivo and in vitro has been associated with a variety of changes in cellular function. Some of these changes are identical to the effects that arachidonate-derived mediators, prostaglandins, leukotrienes, and hydroxyeicosatetraenoic acids, have on macrophage function. Virus infection of macrophages has been(More)
Virus infection of alveolar macrophages (AM) both in vivo and in vitro has been associated with a decreased ability of these cells to kill bacteria, together with enhanced production of metabolites of arachidonic acid. These metabolites, especially PGE2, may be inhibitory to some phagocyte functions. Primary cultures of bovine AM obtained by bronchoalveolar(More)
