Stimulated human neutrophils form biologically active kinin peptides from high and low molecular weight kininogens.

Abstract

Human neutrophils play a pivotal role in acute inflammation. However, their capacity to generate bioactive kinin peptides has not been established as yet. We have examined the ability of neutrophil enzymes to release biologically active kinins in vitro from purified human H- and L-kininogens. Neutrophils isolated from human blood were stimulated with f-Met… (More)
