The release of superoxide anions from human polymorphonuclear leukocytes induced by cytochalasin E was greatly enhanced by the pretreatment of the cells either with deuterium oxide or with concanavalin A. Colchicine, vinblastine and cyclic AMP inhibited the release. Cytochalasins A and B also suppressed the superoxide release. These observations suggest the… CONTINUE READING
