Corynebacterium parvum-elicited hepatic macrophages demonstrate enhanced respiratory burst activity compared with resident Kupffer cells in the rat.

Abstract

We have recently demonstrated that release of oxygen-derived free radicals by activated hepatic macrophages may be involved in the pathogenesis of a rat model of liver injury induced by Corynebacterium parvum and endotoxin. In the present study we have compared the respiratory burst activity of isolated normal rat Kupffer cells with that of hepatic… (More)
