The role of glycosylation in modulating the activity of recombinant human granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (rHuG-CSF) on polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMNs) was investigated. We addressed this study by comparing the effects of lenograstim (glycosylated rHuG-CSF) and its deglycosylated counterpart on superoxide production by PMNs on fibronectin. When the triggering activity of the cytokine was evaluated, no O2- release was elicited from neutrophils treated with either preparation of rHuG-CSF. Instead, a clear potentiation of both fMLP- and TNF-induced respiratory burst was produced by preincubating the cells with rHuG-CSF. Such effect was found to be significantly increased when glycosylated versus deglycosylated preparation was used, leading to the conclusion that the sugar moiety of the molecule could be of importance in improving the priming activity exerted by rHuG-CSF on PMN metabolic response.

Abstract

The role of glycosylation in modulating the activity of recombinant human granulocyte colony-stimulating factor (rHuG-CSF) on polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMNs) was investigated. We addressed this study by comparing the effects of lenograstim (glycosylated rHuG-CSF) and its deglycosylated counterpart on superoxide production by PMNs on fibronectin. When the triggering activity of the cytokine was evaluated, no O2- release was elicited from neutrophils treated with either preparation of rHuG-CSF. Instead, a clear potentiation of both fMLP- and TNF-induced respiratory burst was produced by preincubating the cells with rHuG-CSF. Such effect was found to be significantly increased when glycosylated versus deglycosylated preparation was used, leading to the conclusion that the sugar moiety of the molecule could be of importance in improving the priming activity exerted by rHuG-CSF on PMN metabolic response.
