Ll-37, the Neutrophil Granule–And Epithelial Cell–Derived Cathelicidin, Utilizes Formyl Peptide Receptor–Like 1 (Fprl1) as a Receptor to Chemoattract Human Peripheral Blood Neutrophils, Monocytes,
We have previously shown that antimicrobial peptides like defensins have the capacity to mobilize leukocytes in host defense. LL-37 is the cleaved antimicrobial 37-residue, COOH-terminal peptide ofExpand

Beta-defensins: linking innate and adaptive immunity through dendritic and T cell CCR6.
Defensins contribute to host defense by disrupting the cytoplasmic membrane of microorganisms. This report shows that human beta-defensins are also chemotactic for immature dendritic cells and memoryExpand

International Union of Basic and Clinical Pharmacology. LXXIII. Nomenclature for the Formyl Peptide Receptor (FPR) Family
Formyl peptide receptors (FPRs) are a small group of seven-transmembrane domain, G protein-coupled receptors that are expressed mainly by mammalian phagocytic leukocytes and are known to be importantExpand

Formyl-peptide receptors revisited.
Leukocytes accumulate at sites of inflammation and microbial infection in direct response to locally produced chemotactic factors, which signal through specific G protein-coupled receptors. The firstExpand

Pleiotropic roles of formyl peptide receptors.
FPR and FPRL1 belong to the seven-transmembrane, G protein-coupled chemoattractant receptor superfamily. Because of their capacity to interact with bacterial chemotactic formylated peptides, theseExpand

Amyloid (beta)42 activates a G-protein-coupled chemoattractant receptor, FPR-like-1.
Amyloid beta (Abeta) is a major contributor to the pathogenesis of Alzheimer's disease (AD). Although Abeta has been reported to be directly neurotoxic, it also causes indirect neuronal damage byExpand

Identification of Defensin-1, Defensin-2, and CAP37/Azurocidin as T-cell Chemoattractant Proteins Released from Interleukin-8-stimulated Neutrophils (*)
Reports that interleukin-8 (IL-8) induces the infiltration of neutrophils followed by T-cells into injection sites led us to postulate that by stimulation of neutrophil degranulation IL-8 may causeExpand

Inhibition of STAT3 signaling leads to apoptosis of leukemic large granular lymphocytes and decreased Mcl-1 expression.
Large granular lymphocyte (LGL) leukemia is characterized by the expansion of antigen-activated cytotoxic T lymphocytes. These leukemic cells are resistant to Fas-mediated apoptosis despiteExpand

Neutrophil swarms require LTB4 and integrins at sites of cell death in vivo
Neutrophil recruitment from blood to extravascular sites of sterile or infectious tissue damage is a hallmark of early innate immune responses, and the molecular events leading to cell exit from theExpand
