Differential regulation of formyl peptide receptor-like 1 expression during the differentiation of monocytes to dendritic cells and macrophages.

Monocytes are the common precursors for myeloid dendritic cells (DC) and macrophages. Identification of chemotactic receptors expressed by myeloid DC, macrophages, and their precursors in the course of differentiation and maturation is important not only for elucidation of their in vivo trafficking, but also for understanding of the functional distinction… (More)
