Condensed tannin, isolated from cotton bracts extract (CBE), increases arachidonic acid (AA) release from rabbit alveolar macrophages and inhibits its subsequent reacylation. We determined whether tannin from CBE had any effect upon AA release in bovine tracheal epithelial cells (BTE). [14C] AA release was measured at timed intervals after addition of various concentrations of tannin to BTE cells grown to confluence in the presence of [14C] AA. Tannin caused a time- and dose-dependent release… CONTINUE READING
