Kinetics of collagenase and neutral protease release by neutrophils exposed to microcrystalline sodium urate.

Abstract

The rates of release of the various enzymes from PMN leukocytes exposed to MSU crystals were measured. Lysozyme and neutral protease appeared to be released simultaneously and release appeared to be essentially complete by 60 minutes. In contrast, collagenase was detected only after 30 minutes incubation, reached peak concentration at 90 minutes and dropped… (More)
