Abstract1- Oligoamines and EDTA inhibited the reduction of cytochrome-C and nitrobule tetrazolium (NBT) induced by the hypoxanthine/xanthine oxidase superoxide anion generating system in the following order of effectiveness: putrescine > diaminopropane > spermidine > EDTA > spermine > cadaverine. 2- Oligoamines and EDTA did not affect the rate of urate formation from the hypoxanthine/xanthine oxidase system. 3- Oligoamines and EDTA inhibited the reduction of cytochrome-C induced by stimulated PMNL's in the same order of effectiveness as mentioned before. 4- Oligoamines and EDTA inhibited luminol dependent stimulated PMNL's chemiluminescence. 5- Oligoamines and EDTA inhibited the aerobic photoreduction of NBT. 6- Oligoamines-copper sulphate complexes inhibited the reduction of cytochrome-C induced by the hypoxanthine/xanthine oxidase system more effectively than oligoamines or copper sulphate individually. 7- Superoxide anion, hydrogen peroxide and hydroxyl radical induced breakdown of isolated intact guinea pig liver lysosomes. 8- Oligoamines and EDTA protected isolated intact guinea pig liver lysosomes from the lytic effect of superoxide anion generated either by the hypoxanthine/xanthine oxidase system or by stimulated PMNL's. 9- Oligoamines and EDTA have no stabilizing effect on isolated intact guinea pig liver lysosomes. 10- The uptake of oligoamines by lysosomes was in the following order: putrescine > spermidine > spermine. 11- Oligoamines were metabolised into aldehyde compounds either by the hypoxanthine/xanthine oxidase system or stimulated PMNL's. 12- Oligoamines and EDTA have no effect on the activities of free lysosomal enzymes (acid phosphatase and -glucosaminidase). 13- Oligoamines and EDTA inhibited lipid peroxidation in guinea pig liver lysosomes induced either by the hypoxanthine/xanthine oxidase or ascorbic acid-ferrous sulphate. 14- Oligoamines and EDTA have no effect on the release of PGE_2 from stimulated peritoneal guinea pig PMNL's. 15- Oligoamines increased the uptake of (^3H)thymidine and (^3H)leucine by stimulated peritoneal guinea pig macrophages in the following order of effectiveness: spermine > spermidine > putrescine > cadaverine. 16- PGE_2, dibutyryl Cyclic AMP, and theophylline inhibited luminol dependent stimulated peritoneal guinea pig PMNL's chemiluminescence.
