Abstract

The stimulation of human lung parenchymal fragments with A-23187 induces formation of leukotrienes as well as of PGD2: LTE4 is the compound found in larger amount and independently of the intensity of the stimulus the % of metabolized precursor which is converted to leukotrienes or PGD2 is remarkably similar. However, under conditions of IgE-Anti IgE challenge the predominant conversion of arachidonic acid occurs to PGD2, LTB4 is almost negligible and LTD4 and E4 together represent less than 30% of the oxidative products of arachidonic acid. Whether PGD2 and leukotrienes derive from the same or different subset of cells is unresolved.
