Biochemical and Morphological Characterization of Azurophil and Specific Granules of Human Neutrophilic Polymorphonuclear Leukocytes


Postnuclear supernates from homogenates of purified neutrophil polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMNs) from human blood were fractionated by zonal sedimentation and isopycnic equilibration in sucrose gradients. The fractions were characterized biochemically by measuring protein content and the activities of eight enzymes. Selected fractions were further… (More)
