Interaction of chemotactic factors with human polymorphonuclear leukocytes: Studies using a membrane potential-sensitive cyanine dye

Changes in the fluorescence intensity of the dye 3-3′ dipentyloxacarbocyanine were measured in suspensions of purified human peripheral blood polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMNs) during exposure to the chemotactic factors N-formyl-methionylleucyl-phenylalanine (f-met-leu-phe) and partially purified C5a. Incubation of PMNs with dye resulted in a stable… CONTINUE READING
