Effects of recombinant human granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSFrh) on transmembrane electrical potentials in granulocytes: relationship between enhancement of ligand-mediated depolarization and augmentation of superoxide anion (O2-) production.

Abstract

When human granulocytes that have been primed with recombinant human granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSFrh) are activated by ligands that stimulate the respiratory burst, the amount of superoxide anion (O2-) they generate is significantly increased. We have found that the accelerated rate of O2- release occurring under these conditions… (More)
