Abstract

Dab Limanda limanda kidney macrophages were isolated by adherance to tissue culture plates and their respiratory burst activity subsequently analysed. Several seeding cell concentrations were tested, with 107 and 2 × 107 cells ml-1 giving significant respiratory burst activity. Respiratory burst activity of the isolated macrophages was also investigated following a pre-incubation for 24h or 48h with a variety of concentrations of human recombinant tumor necrosis factor a (rTNFa), β-glucan, Concanavalin-A (Con-A) or lipopolysaccharide (LPS). All four stimulants were able to up-regulate dab macrophage respiratory burst activity at particular concentrations, especially after a 48 h incubation when 6·25 and 12·5 iu ml-1 rTNFa, 0·125, 0·25 and 0·5 μg ml-1 β-glucan, 1·25 and 2·5 μg ml-1 Con-A and 3·125, 6·25, 12·5, 25 and 50 μg ml-1 LPS induced significant increases. LPS and Con-A gave the largest relative increases in activity. However, the highest concentrations tested (50 and 100 iu ml-1 rTNFa, 2, 4 and 8 μg ml-1 β-glucan, 80 μg ml-1 Con-A and 200 μg ml-1 LPS) were inhibitory. The data are discussed in relation to the mode of action of each compound and the usefulness of such assays in pollution monitoring.
