Inhibitors of prostaglandin synthesis block the induction of staphylococcal enterotoxin B-activated T-suppressor cells.


A variety of arachidonic acid metabolites possess the ability to modulate immune cell function. Various inhibitors of arachidonic acid metabolism were compared with regard to their effects on T-suppressor (Ts) cell function. Using staphylococcal enterotoxin B (SEB) to activate Lyt-2+ Ts cells, it was shown that indomethacin and 5,8,11,14-eicosatetraynoic… (More)
