Reaction products of 1-naphthol with reactive oxygen species prevent NADPH oxidase activation in activated human neutrophils, but leave phagocytosis intact.


Activation of human neutrophils with opsonized particles in the presence of a nontoxic dose of 1-naphthol resulted in inhibition of superoxide anion production but not of the phagocytotic activity of the cells. In this study we have investigated the mechanism of action of 1-naphthol. The inhibition is not at the level of cellular activation since the FMLP… (More)
