Effect of muramyldipeptide, a synthetic bacterial adjuvant, on enzyme release from cultured mouse macrophages.

Abstract

Monolayer cultures of macrophages obtained by peritoneal lavage of normal or thioglycollate-stimulated mice spontaneously secreted lysosomal enzymes into the culture medium. When the elicited macrophages were cultured in the presence of muramyldipeptide (MDP), a 20-30% increase in the release of beta-glucuronidase was consistently observed and the… (More)
