Incubation of stimulated neutrophils with sulfhydryl (RSH) compounds or ascorbic acid (ascorbate) results in rapid superoxide (O2-)-dependent oxidation of these reducing agents. Oxidation of RSH compounds to disulfides (RSSR) is faster than the rate of O2- production by the neutrophil NADPH-oxidase, whereas about one ascorbate is oxidized per O2-. Ascorbate(More)
Terminal deoxynucleotidyl transferase (TDT) activity was measured in bone marrow lymphoblasts obtained at diagnosis from 168 consecutive patients with childhood acute leukemia. Absolute concentrations of TDT were increased (greater than or equal to 20 units/10(8) blasts) in samples from 98 of 112 assessable patients with acute lymphocyte leukemia (ALL). The(More)
