Abstract

The effect of five neuropeptides was tested on platelet activating factor (PAF)-stimulated peptidoleukotriene biosynthesis in rat lungs. Calcitonin and peptide histidine valine-42 (PHV-42) were found to inhibit leukotriene C4 (LTC4) and D4 (LTD4) biosynthesis to an extent similar to the previously reported effects of calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) and peptide histidine isoleucine (PHI) respectively. Helodermin potently inhibited the biosynthesis of all three peptidoleukotrienes. Neuropeptide Y and galanin, both present in airways, enhanced the levels of LTD4 and had no effect on LTC4 or leukotriene E4 (LTE4) levels. The theoretical implications of these findings are discussed.
