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)
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)
