Kaliner et al. (1973) have pointed out the analogy between the activation of Cl by IgG and that by antigen, which also requires Ca 2+. The second requirement for Ca2+ follows esterase activation, energy requirement, and perhaps cAMP modulation. 6. Inhibitors. , 1972) and is proving a useful specific therapeutic agent. In vivo, sympathomimetic amines may play a very important controlling and inhibitory role in mediator release from mast cells, and such drugs are commonly used therapeutically. Prostaglandins released from the lung may also act as feedback controls of release.

DFP inhibits the release of granule enzymes and HMP stimulation. However, it is not yet clear whether a proesterase is activated by the stimulus or whether the DFP is acting on an enzyme which is already active (Henson, 1972). Chemotaxis does involve the activation of a neutrophil serine esterase for which low molecular weight synthetic substrates have been 38 PETER M. HENSON found (see Becker, 1972). , 1969). 2. Divalent Cations. The neutrophil activities require calcium. Rabbit neutrophils require Ca2 + in the medium, but human neutrophils may be able to mobilize an intracellular source (see Becker and Henson, 1972).
