抄録 <p>The involvement of macrophages in the induction of metallothionein (MT) synthesis by bacterial endotoxin was studied in vitro. Rat peritoneal macrophages were incubated with endotoxin. The incubation medium from endotoxin-activated macrophages accelerated MT synthesis by human hepatic Chang cells. However, the incubation medium from non-activated macrophages did not. Endotoxin added to the culture medium of Chang cells was ineffective in inducing MT synthesis. The contents of zinc, copper and cadmium, which are primary inducers of MT, in the incubation medium of macrophages in the presence of endotoxin were not different from those in the absence of endotoxin. These results suggest that MT synthesis is induced by endotoxin-treated macrophages.</p>
