Differential responsiveness of human neutrophils to the autocrine actions of 1-O-alkyl-homologs and 1-acyl analogs of platelet-activating factor.


The phlogistic actions of six molecular species of platelet-activating factor (PAF) (1-O-alkyl-PAF homologs, 16:0-, 18:0- and 18:1-alkyl-PAF, 1-O-alkyl-2-acetyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (AGEPC) and their respective 1-acyl-PAF analog counterparts, 16:0-, 18:0- and 18:1-acyl-PAF, 1-acyl-2-acetyl-sn-glycero-3-phosphocholine (AGPC)) were assessed relative to… (More)
