Regulation of luminol-dependent chemiluminescence and degranulation by bovine neutrophils stimulated with opsonized zymosan.

The purpose of this study was to elucidate likely signal transduction pathways in activated bovine neutrophils, by comparing the effects of various inhibitors on the bovine neutrophil respiratory burst and degranulation in vitro. The protein kinase C(PKC) inhibitors staurosporine, and chelerythine, and the beta-adrenergic receptor antagonist DL-propranolol… CONTINUE READING
