Red Cell-Neutrophil Interactions in the Regulation of Active Oxygen Species and Lipoxygenase Products

  • Arnold Stern
Part of the Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology book series (AEMB, volume 314)


Recent evidence indicates that neutrophil eicosanoid metabolism is altered by the presence of another cell type. Possible mechanisms for effecting eicosanoid metabolism in neutrophils by other cell types are related to the capacity of these cell types to incorporate, deactivate or metabolize eicosanoids and their intermediates or provide or scavenge reactants that are utilized by neutrophils.
