General description

Caution! Product contains volatile liquid. Keep product cold at all times.
Potent inhibitor of cytotoxic activity of human natural killer cells. Shown to be as potent as LTB4 in stimulating human neutrophils to generate superoxides. Involved in contractile responses and acts as a potent enhancer of human protein kinase C. Stimulates the rapid lipid remodeling and pertussis-sensitive release of arachidonic acid in polymorphonuclear leukocytes.
