Relationship between the anti-phospholipase and anti-inflammatory effects of glucocorticoid-induced proteins.


Glucocorticoid-induced anti-phospholipase proteins were partially purified by using ion-exchange and molecular sieve chromatography. These proteins, as well as dexamethasone itself, inhibited the hind-paw rat oedema induced by carrageenin. This inhibition was reversed by arachidonic acid, Anti-phospholipase proteins as well as hydrocortisone, also reduced the formation of prostaglandin E2 and leukotriene B4 by phagocytosing leucocytes. A specific monoclonal antibody was able to reverse the inhibition of eicosanoid formation. The mechanism of the anti-inflammatory effect of glucocorticoids and anti-phospholipase proteins is discussed in the light of these results.
