Effects of CD18 deficiency on the emigration of murine neutrophils during pneumonia.


We hypothesized that CD18 deficiency would impair the ability of neutrophils to emigrate from pulmonary blood vessels during certain pneumonias. To directly compare the abilities of wild-type (WT) and CD18-deficient neutrophils to emigrate, mice with both types of leukocytes in their blood were generated by reconstituting the hemopoietic systems of lethally… (More)
