ETHYLENE FORMATION BY POLYMORPHONUCLEAR LEUKOCYTES Role of Myeloperoxidase* BY SEYMOUR J. KLEBANOFF AND HENRY ROSEN

Abstract

Micro-organisms ingested by polyrnorphonuclear leukocytes (PMNs) I are exposed to a variety of anti-microbial systems; some require oxygen, whereas others are effective under anaerobic conditions (1, 2).
