Ferritin-dependent lipid peroxidation by stimulated neutrophils: inhibition by myeloperoxidase-derived hypochlorous acid but not by endogenous lactoferrin.


Human neutrophils stimulated with phorbol myristate acetate or formylmethionylleucylphenylalanine caused superoxide-dependent release of iron from feritin, measured as the formation of a ferrous-ferrozine complex. The stimulated cells also caused ferritin-dependent peroxidation of phospholipid liposomes. Peroxidation was inhibited by lactoferrin, but only… (More)
