Human endothelial cells regulate polymorphonuclear leukocyte degranulation.


Neutrophil degranulation is an important event in inflammatory responses. We examined the regulation of neutrophil (PMN) degranulation by resting and activated human endothelial cells. Whereas PMNs adherent to endothelial cells that were stimulated to express P-selectin and platelet-activating factor did not release the specific granule marker lactoferrin… (More)
