OBJECTIVE Monocyte migration across the vascular endothelium of blood vessels is a key early event in atherosclerosis. The mechanisms underlying monocyte transendothelial migration (TEM), however, are still not completely understood. Here we studied the role of junctional adhesion molecule-like protein (JAML) in regulating monocyte TEM. METHODS AND(More)
Receptor for advanced glycation endproducts (RAGE) is an Ig superfamily cell surface receptor that interacts with a diverse array of ligands associated with inflammatory responses. In this study, we provide evidence demonstrating that RAGE is involved in inflammatory responses in the intestines. We showed that RAGE is expressed in intestinal epithelial(More)
Neutrophil (polymorphonuclear leukocyte; PMN) inflammatory functions, including cell adhesion, diapedesis, and phagocytosis, are dependent on the mobilization and release of various intracellular granules/vesicles. In this study, we found that treating PMN with damnacanthal, a Ras family GTPase inhibitor, resulted in a specific release of secondary granules(More)
