All erythromycin A derivatives, irrespective of the size of the lactone ring and the nature of the substituent, inhibit oxidant production by neutrophils and promote their degranulation. We demonstrate in this study that the L-cladinose at position 3 of the lactone ring is a key structure in the modulation of these two neutrophil functions, suggesting that this sugar (alone or combined with a lactone structure) interferes with cell target(s) involved in both oxidant production and exocytosis… CONTINUE READING
