Carboxypeptidase R (EC 184.108.40.206; CPR) is an unstable basic carboxypeptidase found in fresh serum in addition to carboxypeptidase N (CPN) which is a stable enzyme. CPR in fresh serum is generated from its zymogen (proCPR) during coagulation by trypsin-like enzymes...

Previously published work has indicated that polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) may enhance neutrophil-mediated damage to host tissues. We have found that endothelial detachment was significantly increased by neutrophils pretreated with docosahexaenoic (22:6, n-3) and arachidonic (20:4, n-6) acids at 10-40...

As an approach to facilitating the understanding of proteinases associated with monocytes we have studied U-937 monocytelike cells. Elastase activity was identified in U-937 cell extracts and compared to monocyte elastase activity, neutrophil elastase, and the elastase activity from a...

The neutrophil has been implicated as an important mediator of vascular injury, especially after endotoxemia. This study examines neutrophil-mediated injury to human microvascular endothelial cells in vitro. We found that neutrophils stimulated by formyl-methionyl-leucyl-phenylalanine (FMLP), the complement fragment C5a, or...
