Rat bronchoalveolar cells (99% alveolar macrophages (AM] were obtained by bronchoalveolar lavage and examined for their content of bombesin-like immunoreactivity (BLI) by radioimmunoassay (RIA), immunocytochemistry and high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) analysis. Rat AM contained and released in their culture media significant levels of BLI, the(More)
The present study was undertaken to investigate the effect of iron dextran treatment on polyamine oxidase (PAO) activity, iron accumulation, and lipid peroxidation in livers and hearts of rats. PAO catalyzes oxidative deamination of polyamines, the cellular aliphatic cations. This reaction produces highly toxic hydrogen peroxide, 3-acetamidopropanal, and(More)
INTRODUCTION Sézary syndrome (SS) is an uncommon form of cutaneous T cell lymphoma (CTCL) with a classical triad of lymphadenopathy, characteristic circulating lymphoma cells (Sézary cells) and erythrodermatous skin involvement with classical mycosis fungoides (MF)-like histological picture. CASE REPORT A 32-year-old woman presented with this classical(More)
The initial interactions between macrophages and particles on alveolar surfaces could be significant events in the pathogenesis of certain lung diseases, since these cells are known to secrete a variety of inflammatory mediators and growth factors. It has been determined that the protein and lipid fractions of the extracellular alveolar lining layer (ALL)(More)
Effects of different concentrations of tetrakis-mu-3,5-diisopropylsalicylatodiaquodicopper(II) (Cu(II)2(3,5-DIPS)4(H2O2)2) on the reduced status of glutathione (GSH), the major nonprotein thiol in tissues, were investigated using freshly isolated hepatocytes. Cu(II)2(3,5-DIPS)4 below 100 microM did not have any significant effects on either the GSH content(More)
