Abstract

The effect of various Pasteurella multocida fractions on bovine polymorphonuclear leukocyte (PMN) functions was examined in vitro by using two encapsulated strains, P-2383 and P-1062 (both are Carter capsular type A and of bovine origin). The ability of PMNs to ingest Staphylococcus aureus and iodinate protein was significantly inhibited in the presence of live cells, heat-killed whole cells, or saline-extracted capsules but not in the presence of the decapsulated heat-killed cells. None of the fractions of the two strains inhibited nitroblue tetrazolium reduction by PMNs. The saline extract did not inhibit the binding of iodine to protein by a reaction involving xanthine, xanthine oxidase, and horseradish peroxidase. The PMN inhibitory factor was further characterized as a heat-stable capsular material of greater than 300,000 molecular weight.
