Mouse milk fat globule epidermal growth factor 8 (MFG-E8), which is secreted by a subset of activated macrophages, binds to apoptotic cells by recognizing phosphatidylserine and promotes their engulfment. Many apoptotic cells are left unengulfed in the germinal centers of the spleen in MFG-E8(-/-) mice, and these mice develop an autoimmune disease(More)
To understand the expression of NADPH oxidase components during neutrophil maturation, we examined the expression of mRNAs and proteins for NADPH oxidase components, and the superoxide-producing activity using HL-60 cells incubated with dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO). Northern blot and Western blot analyses revealed that gp91(phox), p67(phox), and p47(phox) were(More)
We evaluated an appropriate region of interest (ROI) size for the measurement of full width at half maximum (FWHM) in the bead method (0.1 mm and 0.5 mm diameter; lead) and the microdisk method (0.05 mm thickness and 1.0 mm diameter; tungsten) using multislice computed tomography (CT). The FWHM of preset slice thicknesses 0.625 mm, 1.25 mm, 5.0 mm and 7.5(More)
