Partial purification of rabbit aorta contracting substance-releasing factor and inhibition of its activity by anti-inflammatory steroids

F P NijkampJ R Vane


Rabbit aorta contracting substance-releasing factor (RCS-RF) is found in perfusates from guinea pig lungs during anaphylaxis. It has been identified as a small peptide which releases arachidonic acid from lung tissue, thus generating prostaglandin endoperoxides and tbromboxanes and causing bronchocconstriction. Anti-inflammatory steroids block the release of arachidonate by RCS-RF. In this activity their relative potency is very similar to their relative anti-inflammatory potency, suggesting that the two actions may be related.
