Our previous studies indicate that bacterial lipopolysaccharide (LPS) enhances natural killer (NK) cell-mediated cytotoxicity and increases intracellular calcium (Ca2+) in hepatocytes. Calmodulin (CAM) regulates Ca2(+)-ATPase activity, intracellular Ca2+, and is also implicated in NK cell-mediated cytolysis. In the present work, the effects of LPS and CAM… CONTINUE READING
