The control experiments that had no LT~ added or no calcium ionophore added to the cells indicated no production of adduct. The quantity of adduct formed in three different experiments was found to range between 2-4 adducts in 1 x 108 base pairs of DNA. There was no evidence for the production of other nucleoside adducts with LT~ detected in these samples using LC/MS/MS techniques and multiple reaction monitoring specific for each nucleoside adduct. Furthermore, the cytosol from cell incubations did not contain any LT~ adducts of guanosine or deoxyguanosine or any deribosylated bases from DNA or RNA that may have come from depurination reactions.

Percent inhibition in cell number was determined. Results are expressed as mean ± SEM (n=4, d2:2). 05 by Student's t-test. (ALX-tg) displayed a clear decrease in pulmonary leukocytic infiltrates. BAL from allergen challenged ALX-tg mice had reduced numbers of total leukocytes, eosinophils and lymphocytes (63%, 68% and 85% inhibition, respectively) (Figure 2). Levels of pro-inflammatory peptide and lipid mediators were also decreased in ALX-tg mice, including IL-13 (77% 22 LIPOXINS IN AIRWAYRESPONSES inhibition), 1L-5 (71% inhibition) and CysLT (74% inhibition).
