Eosinophil peroxidase-mediated inactivation of leukotrienes B4, C4, and D4.

Abstract

The slow-reacting substance (SRS) bioactivity of leukotrienes C4 (LTC4) and D4 (LTD4) was rapidly decreased by incubation with eosinophil peroxidase (EPO), H2O2, and iodide, bromide, or to a lesser degree, chloride, LTB4 chemotactic activity was also decreased by the EPO-H2-H2-halide system, although at a slower rate. Myeloperoxidase could substitute for… (More)
