Abstract

A series of monosaccharides were tested for their ability to inhibit the effector phase of macrophage-mediated cytolysis against two susceptible murine tumor target cells, L5178Y and RL♂I. Two monosaccharides, D-mannose and N-acetyl-D-galactosamine, were found to decrease cytotoxicity consistently in a dose-dependent manner. However, D-mannose preferentially inhibited lysis of RL♂I target cells with little effect on lysis of L5178Y target cells, while the reverse was found with N-acetyl-D-galactosamine. Neither monosaccharide interfered with the activation of macrophages by polyinosinic:polycytidylic acid. Natural killer cell activity was decreased by a 25 mM concentration of d-mannose but not by N-acetyl-D-galactosamine, although increasing concentrations of N-acetyl-D-galactosamine were inhibitory. Neither monosaccharide affected cytotoxicity by alloimmune T cells. Cytotoxicity of macrophage-like cell lines against tumor target cells was also decreased by monosaccharides but the pattern of inhibition was different from that seen with activated macrophage effector cells. Both D-mannose and N-acetyl-D-galactosamine inhibited glucose oxidation by activated macrophages but only d-mannose significantly decreased protein synthesis of activated macrophages. These results indicate that monosaccharides can inhibit macrophage-mediated cytotoxicity in a selective manner with the pattern dependent on the tumor target cell used in the assay.
