Biosynthesis of granule proteins in normal human bone marrow cells. Gelatinase is a marker of terminal neutrophil differentiation.


Differentiation and maturation of myeloid cells is characterized by the sequential acquisition of two distinct cytoplasmic granule subsets, azurophil granules and specific granules. We recently showed the existence of a third granule subset, gelatinase granules. To investigate whether appearance of gelatinase granules marks a further step in maturation of… (More)
