Macrophages are important producers of arachidonic acid and its metabolites. Upon phagocytosis, macrophages release up to 50% of their arachidonic acid for membranous esterified glycerol phospholipid. It is immediately metabolized into different types of prostanoids. From them, prostaglandins, especially PGE2 and prostacyclin (PGI2), are characterized as proinflammatory agents. They induce vasodilation, act synergetically with complement components C5a and LTB4, and mediate myalgia response to IL-1.
