A little guide for advanced search:

  • Tip 1. You can use quotes "" to search for an exact expression.
    Example: "cell division"
  • Tip 2. You can use + symbol to restrict results containing all words.
    Example: +cell +stem
  • Tip 3. You can use + and - symbols to force inclusion or exclusion of specific words.
    Example: +cell -stem
e.g. searching for members in projects tagged cancer

Ca2+ antagonists such as nifedipine (Nif) inhibit processes that depend on extracellular Ca2+ in many muscular and secretory cells. The effect of Nif on mediator release and Ca2+ uptake by human polymorphonuclear neutrophils (PMN) has been investigated. Nif caused a concentration-dependent inhibition of the Ca2+ ionophore-induced release of platelet-activating factor (PAF-acether), slow-reacting substance (SRS) and to a lesser degree beta-glucuronidase (beta-glu). Nif inhibited the synthesis of PAF-acether rather than its release. Increasing Ca2+ concentration in the bathing medium from 1.3 to 2.8 mM completely reversed the effect of Nif on PAF-acether secretion. Nif at 1 and 5 microM reduced PMN45Ca2+ uptake induced by the Ca2+ ionophore A 23187. These results indicate that the inhibition by Nif of mediator release depends probably on the Ca2+-antagonistic property of the drug. A preliminary ex vivo study suggests that this inhibitory effect on neutrophil functions exists during therapeutic use.
