The effect of dicarboxylic lecithins on the lecithin:cholesterol acyltransferase [LCAT] activity was studied with a partially purified preparation [approximately 24-fold]. The presence of dicarboxylic lecithins is followed by the inhibition of LCAT. The inhibition is proportional to the concentration of glutaryl-lecithin and is about 50% with 0.16 mM glutaryl-lecithin. For a higher concentration, the inhibition is total. The inhibition of LCAT activity was of a mixed type. It can be explained…

Elastase in the different primary granules of the human neutrophil.
TLDR
On stimulation of neutrophils with N-formylmethionylleucylphenylalanine, elastase is not released from the least dense subpopulation, whereas other two subpopulations do undergo degranulation to approximately the same extent, however, the release ofElastase from these two denser granules differs after they are isolated and treated with calcium.

The ability of each type of leukocyte to perform its special function depends on the synthesis of particular chemical substances during its maturation. Certain leukocytes, e.g., the granulocytes,
Oxygen Intermediates and the Microbicidal Event
The antimicrobial systems of phagocytes (for previous reviews, see Klebanoff 1975; Klebanoff & Hamon 1975; Babior 1978; Klebanoff & Clark 1978) are initially divided into those which require oxygen
Differential distribution of distinct forms of myeloperoxidase in different azurophilic granule subpopulations from human neutrophils.
TLDR
Observations suggest that the different forms of MPO may have distinct functional roles and/or are a possible reflection of maturational differences among the granule subpopulations.
Peroxidatic activity distinct from myeloperoxidase in human monocytes cultured in vitro and in alveolar macrophages.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that human macrophages and adherent monocytes may exhibit PA in RER as has been reported for rodent macrophage.
Abnormalities of Granulocytes and Megakaryocytes in Preleukemic Syndromes
TLDR
In granulocytes and megakaryocytes, several abnormal subpopulations of mature cells are mixed with an apparently normal population, however none of the described features can be considered as specific or prognostic for the prediction of transformation in acute leukemia.
Evidence that phagocytosing chicken polymorphonuclear leukocytes generate hydrogen peroxide and superoxide anion.
TLDR
Polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMN) are known to produce hydrogen peroxide during the respiratory stimulation associated with the ingestion of particles, which may be destroyed within the cell or leaked out of the cell.
Ultrastructural distribution of peroxidase in thrombocytes of mammals and submammals
TLDR
The distribution of peroxidase activity in thrombocytes, neutrophils, and eosinophils is compared and it is concluded that these are significant differences in the distribution of PPO and myeloperoxidases.
Oxidative cytochemistry in phagocytosis: the interface between structure and function
TLDR
The laboratory has studied the bactericidal machinery of PMNs by cytochemical means and established that the myeloperoxidase-H2O2 system could work within the phagosome, since both of these components are present following phagocytosis.
Metal content of neutrophil granules is altered in chronic inflammation
TLDR
The results obtained indicate that the granulocyte accumulation of Ca, Sr, and Fe observed during chronic inflammation is associated with corresponding granule accumulation of these metals, and the considerable Mn accumulation in granulocytes during inflammation is not localized in their granules; and the granule subpopulations differ in their capacity to store certain metals.

TLDR
The presented method seems to be a good measure for the in vivo blood plasma cholesterol esterification rate as only autologous, non-heated lipoproteins are used in the assay.

TLDR
Several indications exist that the acyltransferase reaction is the major source of plasma esterified cholesterol in man, and one possibility is that it plays a role in the transport of cholesterol from peripheral tissues to the liver.

A method for the purification of milligram quantities of stable human phosphatidylcholine-cholesterol acyltransferase.
TLDR
The activity of the enzyme was stable for 4 days, but most of its activity was lost after 20 days on electrophoresis on 5% polyacrylamide gel, a fast-moving band with enzyme activity and a slow- Moving band with no enzyme activity was observed.
The effects of amphiphilic cationic drugs and inorganic cations on the activity of phosphatidate phosphohydrolase.
TLDR
It is concluded that the inhibition of phosphatidate phosphohydrolase by amphiphilic cations can largely be explained by the interaction of these compounds with phosph atidate, which changes the physical properties of the lipid, making it less available for conversion into diacylglycerol.
Hydrolysis of ( 3 H, 14 C)phosphatidylethanolamines by acid phospholipases A of subcellular fractions of rat spleen.
TLDR
Rat spleen exhibits maximal phospholipase A activity at pH 4.5, and the mitochondria + lysosomes fraction was further fractionated on a sucrose gradient, finding that rat spleen is about 1.3-fold richer in phospholIPase A1 than in phosphorus A2.

TLDR
The inhibition of papain by benzoylamido acetonitrile with benzoylglycine methyl-ester as substrate exhibits unusual kinetics and is tenatively explained by association between substrate and inhibitor.
