Rapid clearance of adoptively transferred Cd47-null (Cd47(-/-)) cells in congeneic WT mice suggests a critical self-recognition mechanism, in which CD47 is the ubiquitous marker of self, and its interaction with macrophage signal regulatory protein α (SIRPα) triggers inhibitory signaling through SIRPα cytoplasmic immunoreceptor tyrosine-based inhibition(More)
Chronic diseases are often associated with altered inflammatory response, leading to increased host vulnerability to new inflammatory challenges. Employing streptozotocin (STZ)-induced diabetes as a model, we further investigate mechanisms leading to enhanced neutrophil (polymorphonuclear leukocytes [PMN]) responses under hyperglycemia and compare them with(More)
Myeloid-derived suppressor cells (MDSCs) promote tumor growth through, in part, inhibiting T cell immunity. However, mechanisms underlying MDSC expansion and guidance of MDSCs toward the tumor microenvironment remain unclear. Employing Percoll density gradients, we separate bone marrow (BM) leukocytes from tumor-bearing mice into four density-increasing(More)
