The effect of dansylcadaverine, amantadine, and rimantadine on phagocytosis, release of PAF-acether, phospholipid methylation, and phosphatidylcholine formation by the cholinephosphotransferase pathway was assessed in human peripheral polymorphonuclear leukocytes. All of the drugs induced a dose-dependent and reversible inhibition in the uptake of complement-coated zymosan particles as well as a reduction in the release of PAF-acether. Simultaneously, a marked reduction in the formation of phosphatidylcholine was observed. This was also dose-dependent and reversible, and showed this order of potency: dansylcadaverine greater than rimantadine greater than amantadine. Dansylcadaverine reduced phospholipid methylation to a lesser extent than the cholinephosphotransferase pathway. These data show that drugs that block receptor-mediated endocytosis inhibit the response of the human polymorphonuclear cell and suggest that this action may be mediated by their actions on phospholipid metabolism.
