Stimulation processes effective for macrophage (M phi) cytostasis induction also led to a L-arginine-dependent M phi cell death by apoptosis in parallel to nitrite and citrulline production. Resident M phi stimulated with LPS plus IFN-gamma and MDP produced high amounts of nitrite and underwent apoptosis. Inflammatory M phi treated with LPS or IFN-gamma alone produced low levels of nitrite and were not apoptotic, whereas a synergistic effect was observed, the combined treatment leading to high… CONTINUE READING
