Inhibition of phagocytosis of polymorphonuclear leucocytes by adenosine and HoCl3 in vitro.


PMID 6533415

Abstract

Phagocytosis of polymorphonuclear leucocytes treated with NaF, HoCl3 and adenosine were studied. The highest concentration used was 25 mM of NaF, 25 mM of adenosine and 5 mM of HoCl3. It was ascertained that these substances, inhibitors of erythrocyte contractile protein, inhibit both phagocytosis and ability of polymorphonuclear leucocytes to change their shape. These unfavourable effects may be induced by the chemicals interfering with polymorphonuclear leucocytes contractile protein. NaF, HoCl3 and adenosine are also responsible for morphological changes in the cell nucleus.
