|Abstract:||Evidences have been provided by many laboratories that the activation of the NADPH oxidase in neutrophils by formyl-methionyl-leucyl-phenylalanine (FMLP) is strictly linked to a transduction pathway that involves the stimulation, via GTP binding protein, of the phosphoinositide turnover and the increase in [Ca2+]i. The results presented in this paper demonstrate that FMLP can activate the NADPH oxidase by triggering a transduction pathway completely independent of phosphoinositide turnover and Ca2+ changes. In fact: i) Ca2+-depleted neutrophils do not respond to FMLP with the activation of phosphoinositide hydrolysis and NADPH oxidase. Both the responses are restored by the addition of exogenous Ca2+. ii) In Ca2+-depleted neutrophils phorbol-myristate-acetate (PMA) activates the NADPH oxidase. iii) The pretreatment of Ca2+-depleted neutrophils with non stimulatory doses of PMA restores the activation of the NADPH oxidase but not of the turnover of phosphoinositides by FMLP. This priming effect of PMA and|
