A reassessment of the energy requirements for neutrophil migration: adenosine triphosphate depletion enhances chemotaxis.


In view of previous studies demonstrating a significant correlation between adenosine triphosphate (ATP) depletion and impairment of chemotaxis (CTX) during granulocyte (PMN) storage, we sought to quantitate the relationship between CTX and PMN energy metabolism. We incubated PMNs at 37 degrees C with 2-deoxyglucose (2-dg) in the presence of 5 mmol/L… (More)
