    Abstract: The study investigates the effect of calcitriol treatment on oxygen consumption rate as generated by agonist stimulation of RAW 264.7 cell lines and its usefulness in eliciting reduced oxygen consumption in high respiratory burst-dependent disease state. Phorbol 12-myristate 13-acetate (PMA) and Formyl-methionyl-leucyl-phenylalanine (FMLP) were use... Show More
