Cells isolated from the rat pleural cavity consist mainly of macrophages, mast cells, eosinophils, and lymphocytes. Isolated pleural cells labeled with [14C]arachidonic acid released appreciable amounts (approximately 12%) of radiolabel upon exposure to pharmacological concentrations of carrageenan (1-100 micrograms/ml). The release of radiolabel was… CONTINUE READING
