Colostral neutrophils express Fca receptors (CD89) lacking g chain association and mediate noninflammatory properties of secretory IgA


Colostrum plays an important role in protecting newborn infants against acute gastrointestinal and respiratory infections. IgA antibodies have been considered the major effector component; however, the role of their receptors on colostral phagocytes, especially neutrophils, has not been studied. Here, we demonstrate that CD15 colostrum neutrophils express… (More)
