Abstract

Abstract We have studied the effect of prostaglandin (PG) D 2 on human natural killer (NK) cell activity using 51Cr-labelled K562 target cells. PGD 2 caused a dose dependant inhibition of NK cell activity, producing maximal, non-toxic inhibition at a concentration of 1 × 10 −6 M. This inhibition was not due to interference with effector target cell binding (E:TCB) and was seen using Percoll-enriched NK cells. A time dependent inhibition of NK cell activity was seen when dibutyryl cyclic AMP (DiBcAMP) and PGD 2 were added in parallel to the NK cell assay suggesting that PGD 2 directly inhibits NK cell activity via the adenylate cyclase system which modulates the killing process.
