Expression of a binding structure for sialic acid-containing glycoconjugates on rat bone marrow-derived macrophages and its modulation by IFN, TNF-alpha, and dexamethasone.

Abstract

Rat macrophages express a binding structure for sialic acid-containing glycoconjugates (sialic acid-binding receptor, SAR) which can be detected by a rosette assay utilizing SRBC coated with bovine brain gangliosides (E-G). Freshly isolated rat bone marrow cells (BMC) contain about 5% SAR-positive cells. Rat BMC cultured for 1 wk with tissue culture media… (More)
