Abstract

SUMMARY: The effect of purified human interferon-γ on the responsiveness of human neutrophils was investigated. Pre-incubation of neutrophils with 100 U interferon ml for 10 min at 37°C resulted in a 2.5-fold increase in -formylmethionyl-leucyl-phenylalanine-stimulated reactive oxygen metabolite generation (as assayed by luminol-dependent chemiluminescence). Pretreatment of neutrophils with interferon also potentiated their ability to kill , and thus it is proposed that this lymphokine may also enhance neutrophil function under certain pathological conditions.
