Guinea pig ozone-induced airway hyperreactivity is associated with increased N-acetyl-β-D-glucosaminidase activity in bronchoalveolar lavage fluid

Abstract

High level ozone exposure is known to cause acute, neutrophil-independent airway hyperreactivity in the guinea pig. The precise biochemical mechanisms involved remain unclear. Because of its potential pathophysiologic importance, we examined whether a lysosomal hydrolase, N-acetyl-β-D-glucosaminidase (NAGA) was released from the airways in vivo and from… (More)
