Effect of experimental inflammation on the synthesis and distribution of antithrombin III and alpha1-antitrypsin in rabbits.


Local inflammation, induced by s.c. injection of turpentine, evoked characteristic changes in the metabolism of antithrombin III, and alpha1-antitrypsin. For a period of approximately 36 h, the plasma half-lives of both protease inhibitors were shortened to 70--74% of the respective preinjection values. Similar changes were also observed in the slope of… (More)
