Neutrophils are subjected to mechanical stimulation as they deform into the narrow capillary segments of the pulmonary microcirculation. The present study seeks to understand the changes in the cytoskeletal structure and the extent of biological activation as a result of this process. Neutrophils were passed through narrow polycarbonate filter pores under physiological driving pressures, fixed, and stained downstream to visualize the F-actin content and distribution. Below a threshold capillary… CONTINUE READING
