Superoxide production and chemiluminescence induced in differentiated HL-60 cells by the chemoattractant formyl-methionyl-leucyl-phenylalanine.

Abstract

Superoxide production and chemiluminescence induced in differentiated HL-60 cells by the chemoattractant formylmethionyl-leucyl-phenylalanine: In order to study the generation of oxidative metabolites in relation to cell differentiation, dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) and retinoic acid (RA) differentiated HL-60 cells were stimulated with the chemotactic peptide formylmethionyl-leucyl-phenylalanine (FMLP). The oxidative response was measured as luminol-dependent chemiluminescence, lucigenin-dependent chemiluminescence, and cytochrome c reduction. Cells grown in the presence of DMSO or RA progressively expressed morphological changes, and when the mature cells were exposed to FMLP the cells produced oxidative metabolites. Quantitatively the HL-60 cells grown in the presence of DMSO gave rise to the most pronounced response. No correlation was obtained between superoxide production, luminol-chemiluminescence and lucigenin-dependent chemiluminescence, indicating that different aspects of the oxidative response are elucidated by the three different methods. Furthermore, the experiments show that DMSO and RA-induced differentiation of HL-60 cells leads to granulocyte-like cells with different abilities to produce oxidative metabolites, possibly due to differences in receptor function.
