CD23, the low affinity receptor for IgE, is a 45 kilodalton molecule belonging to the C-type lectin family, some members of which have been identified as adhesion molecules. Since it has been described upregulated in different cells in chronic inflammatory diseases and in rheumatoid arthritis in particular, where neutrophils are directly involved in tissue damage, our interest, in this work, has been focused on the expression and regulation of this antigen on neutrophil membrane. We studied 22… CONTINUE READING
