Mechanism involved in the mobilization of neutrophil calcium by 5-hydroxyeicosatetraenoate.


5-Hydroxyeicosatetraenoate (5-HETE), like leukotriene B4 and platelet-activating factor, stimulated human polymorphonuclear neutrophils to mobilize intracellular calcium. The three compounds acted through mechanisms that were inhibited by pertussis toxin, cholera toxin, and PMA. Each agonist, furthermore, desensitized (or down-regulated) the neutrophil's… (More)
