Antithrombin III (AT-III) is a serine protease inhibitor (serpin) that can be catalytically inactivated by human neutrophil elastase (HNE) without inhibiting HNE activity. As with catalytic inactivation of most serpins, the cleaved form of the inhibitor is difficult to measure in the presence of active inhibitor. One major difference between the cleaved and(More)
The CD11b/CD18 leukocyte integrin molecule mediates diverse neutrophil adherence-related functions, including cell:cell and cell:extracellular matrix attachments. To study the individual role of this leukocyte integrin in cell adherence in hematopoietic cells, we expressed the CD11b/CD18 complex on the surface of K562 cells, a cell line derived from an(More)
Mesenchymal stem/stromal cells (MSCs) play crucial roles in maintaining tissue homeostasis during physiological turnovers and injuries. Very little is known about the phenotype, distribution and molecular nature of MSCs in freshly isolated human salivary glands (SGs) as most reports have focused on the analysis of cultured MSCs. Our results demonstrate that(More)
