In Vitro

The direct interaction of C3a(70-77) with human mononuclear leukocytes in culture results in a concentration-dependent inhibition of the generation of LIF evoked by mitogens and by the antigen SK-SD. The extent of suppression of LIF generation by C3a(70-77) is significant at concentrations of 10-7 M or higher and exceeds 75% at 10-6 M, irrespective of the stimulus[1].
C3a (70-77) induces histamine release and degranulation of rat mast cells, promotes contraction of guinea pig ileal tissue, and enhances vascular permeability in human skin. C3a (70-77) selectively desensitizes ileal smooth muscle to C3a but not to human C5a, a related anaphylatoxin. Conversely, C3a-(70-77) is unable to contract ileal smooth muscle pretreated with natural C3a. This cross-desensitization indicates a specific interaction of C3a (70-77) with cellular C3a binding sites[2].

Kinase Assay

2×105 mononuelear leukocytes in 0.2 mL of M199-HPS containing 15% (vol/vol) AB-positive serum are added to each well of microtiter plates without or with 10 μg/mL of Con A, PHA, or SK-SD and incubated at 37°C in 5% CO2:95% air. C3a or C3a(70-77) is introduced into some suspensions at the same time as the stimulus or buffer. After 3 d for the mitogen-stimulated cultures and 5 d for the SK-SD-stimulated cultures, 1 μCi of [3H]thymidine is added to each well. After an additional 16 h at 37°C, the uptake of [3H]thymidine is analyzed by aspirating the contents of each well with a Mash II harvester that collected and ished the leukocytes on glass fiber filters. The radioactivity in each filter is quantified, and the results for quadruplicate chambers are expressed as mean cpm+SEM[1].
