MITOCHONDRIAL OXIDANT PRODUCTION BY POLLUTANT DUST AND NO-MEDIATED APOPTOSIS IN HUMAN ALVEOLAR MACHROPHAGE
Huang, YuhChin T, J M. Soukup, S. Harder, AND S E. Becker. MITOCHONDRIAL OXIDANT PRODUCTION BY POLLUTANT DUST AND NO-MEDIATED APOPTOSIS IN HUMAN ALVEOLAR MACHROPHAGE. American Journal of Physiology - Lung Cellular and Molecular Physiology 284:C24-C32, (2002).
Residual oil fly ash (ROFA) is a pollutant dust that stimulates production of reactive oxygen species (ROS) from mitochondria and apoptosis in alveolar macrophages (AM), but the relationship between these two processes is unclear. In this study, human AM were incubated with ROFA or vanadyl sulfate (VOSO4), the major metal constituent in ROFA, with or without nitro-L-arginine methyl ester (L-NAME), diphenyleneiodonium (DPI), and mitochondrial electron transport inhibitors.
