Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Preincubation of human monocytes with different amounts of human lymphokine at 37 degrees C dose dependently increased the uptake of EA cells at both 37 degrees C and 4 degrees C. Phenylmethanesulphonyl fluoride (PMSF), an inhibitor of serine esterases, inhibited the process. It seemed that the serine esterase and not the gamma interferon component of the lymphokine played the main role in the phenomenon.
