Human polymorphonuclear leukocytes treated with cytochalasin B release the lysosomal enzyme beta glucuronidase during contact with serum-activated zymosan particles. Histamine increases intracellular cyclic adenosine monophosphate and inhibits release of this enzyme. The H2 antihistamine metiamide blocks the histamine inhibition of lysosomal enzyme release and the increase in the intracellular adenoisine 3,5'-monophosphate of granulocytes. Chlorpheniramine, an H1 antihistamine, did not block the histamine inhibition of granulocyte lysosomal enzyme release.
