C2-ceramide primes specifically for the superoxide anion production induced by N-formylmethionylleucyl phenylalanine (fMLP) in human neutrophils.

Abstract

Activated sphingomyelinases release ceramide molecules believed to be involved in intracellular signalling. The present study investigated whether soluble C2-ceramide modulates some of the effects of N-formylmethionylleucyl phenylalanine (fMLP) and other agonists on human neutrophils (or polymorphonuclear leukocytes-PMN); principally superoxide anion (O2… (More)
