We have investigated the role of carbon monoxide (CO) in lucigenin-dependent chemiluminescence of alveolar macrophages from rat lungs. CO (10 nM to 1 microM) decreased chemiluminescence of alveolar macrophages in a concentration-dependent fashion. At a concentration of 1 microM, CO significantly increased intracellular cyclic GMP levels from a control value… CONTINUE READING
