Platelet-activating factor induces protein kinase activity in the particulate fraction of human neutrophils.


Platelet-activating factor (PAF) is a proinflammatory lipid that has both platelet- and phagocyte-stimulating properties. Because several known activators of calcium-, phospholipid-dependent protein kinase (protein kinase c, PKC) also stimulate neutrophil responses and because neutrophil stimuli such as phorbol diesters and the chemotactic peptide f-Met-Leu… (More)
