Iron tetrakis (N-methyl-4'-pyridyl) porphyrinato inhibits proliferative activity of thymocytes by blocking activation of p38 mitogen-activated protein kinase, nuclear factor-kappaB, and interleukin-2 secretion

Iron tetrakis (N-methyl-4'-pyridyl) porphyrinato inhibits proliferative activity of thymocytes by blocking activation of p38 mitogen-activated protein kinase, nuclear factor-kappaB, and interleukin-2 secretion

Toxicology and Applied Pharmacology 191(2): 147-155

Iron tetrakis (N-methyl-4'-pyridyl) porphyrinato (FeTMPyP) has been demonstrated to be a potent scavenger of reactive oxygens and to have antiinflammatory activities. However, the effects of FeTMPyP on the function of T cells have not been illustrated. The objective of this study was to determine whether treatment of thymocytes with FeTMPyP inhibited the proliferative activity in response to various mitogens and, if so, to further characterize the mechanism of FeTMPyP immune modulation.
