Salbutamol inhibits trypsin-mediated production of CXCL8 by keratinocytes.
Treatment of primary keratinocytes (HEKAp) with trypsin led to the production and release of CXCL8. Production of CXCL8 was exquisitely sensitive to inhibition by co-treatment with the beta(2) agonist sabutamol (IC(50)=1.1 nM). The inhibitory effect of salbutamol was beta receptor-mediated since the effect was prevented by the beta antagonist sotalol. Salbutamol also elevated intracellular levels of cAMP (EC(50)=82 nM) but the relationship to the inhibition of CXCL8 secretion was not clear-cu...Expand abstract
