Eosinophil chemotactic factor (ECF), previously thought to be primarily associated with human basophils and mast cells, could be released from human neutrophils (PMN) and eosinophils but not lymphocytes by the calcium ionophore A23187. Release of ECF from PMN was time and dose-dependent. Like antigen-induced, basophil-derived ECF, PMN-derived ECF had a high selectivity for eosinophils as determined by differential counts of migrating cells and by deactivation studies.
