Mitogen-induced gamma interferon production by human lymphoid cell cultures was studied in the presence of calcium entry blockers. A dose-dependent inhibition was found in the presence of drug concentrations down to 10-5 M. This finding shows that calcium flow through lymphocyte membranes after oxidation of membrane-bound galactose residues is also critical for triggering interferon production.
