Involvement of calcium in macrophage leukotriene release during experimental cirrhosis.


The aim of the present study was to assess the mechanism of 5-lipoxygenase metabolites (LT) secretion by peritoneal macrophages in rats wih CC14 induced cirrhosis. After stimulation with calcium ionophore A23187 or opsonized zymosan, [3H] arachidonic acid labeled macrophages from cirrhotic rats presented a significantly greater secretion of LT than… (More)
