Contrasting effects of two arachidonate 5-lipoxygenase inhibitors on formyl-methionyl-leucyl-phenylalanine (fMLP) and complement fragment 5a induced human neutrophil superoxide generation.

Abstract

SC-45662 and SC-41661A, selective arachidonate 5-lipoxygenase (5-LO) inhibitors, had markedly different effects on formyl-methionyl-leucyl-phenylalanine (fMLP) and complement fragment 5a (C5a) induced superoxide release from human neutrophils (PMNs). SC-45662 inhibited superoxide generation induced by fMLP and C5a with IC50 values of 12 and 5 microM… (More)
