Staphylococcal protein A is a bacterial cell wall product that binds human immunoglobulin G and thereby interferes with opsonization and phagocytosis of Staphylococcus aureus by neutrophils. Phagocytic cells are also responsive to various non-immunoglobulin lymphocyte mediators. We utilized the detection of a newly recognized mediator, a neutrophil migration inhibition factor from T-lymphocytes (NIF-T), to show that aggregates of staphylococcal protein A and immunoglobulins G could inhibit the… CONTINUE READING
