Formation of LTB4 by fMLP-stimulated alveolar macrophages accounts for eosinophil migration in vitro.


Guinea pig alveolar macrophages obtained by bronchoalveolar lavage were isolated by adherence for 2 h and stimulated with 1 microM of N-formyl-L-methionyl-L-leucyl-L-phenylalanine (fMLP) for different time intervals. The supernatants then were tested for their chemotactic effect on guinea pig peritoneal normodense eosinophils and for release of thromboxane… (More)
