The feline chemotactic factor(s) for polymorphonuclear cells (PMN) in culture supernatant from mononuclear cells (MNC) treated with egg white derivatives (EWD) were examined. Culture supernatant from MNC treated with EWD and human recombinant (hr) IL-8 remarkably enhanced chemo-taxis of feline PMN. To investigate feline chemotactic factor(s), gel electrophoresis was performed with culture supernatant from MNC treated with EWD under denaturing (18% loading gel/5% stacking gel) and nondenaturing (12.5% loading gel/5% stacking gel) condition. Hr IL-8 and culture supernatant from MNC treated with EWD yielded a distinct band in a molecular weight, 6 to 8 kDa. Eluted solution from gel slices of 6 to 8 kDa band in denaturing condition also enhanced feline PMN chemotaxis. These chemotactic activities of feline PMN induced by culture supernatant from MNC treated with EWD, hr IL-8 and eluted solution were inhibited in a dose-dependent manner by rabbit anti-feline polyclonal IgG (RAF pIgG) and monoclonal antibody (mAb) against hr IL-8. RAF pIgG also showed a binding activity with hr IL-8, suggesting that RAF pIgG against feline IL-8-like chemotactic factor(s) had cross-reactivity with human IL-8. These results suggested that feline MNC treated with EWD might release feline IL-8-like chemotactic factor(s) with a molecular weight, 6 to 8 kDa, which induces the chemotaxis of feline PMN.
