Differences in the ability of neutrophils and monocytes to traverse epithelial occluding junctions.


This study examines the effect of epithelial permeability on 1) the passage of the chemoattractant tritiated formyl methionyl-leucyl-phenylalanine (3H-fMLP; m.w. 437) and 2) the migration of leukocytes. In addition, it also compares the kinetics of neutrophil and monocyte transepithelial migration. As we had demonstrated with neutrophils (Milks et al… (More)
