Killing of gram-negative bacteria by neutrophils: role of O2-independent system in intracellular killing and evidence of O2-dependent extracellular killing.

Abstract

For many strains of these two bacterial species, ingested bacteria are efficiently killed by O2-independent mechanisms. Intracellular killing depends not on 2de novo generation of toxic products of the respiratory burst but rather on intracellular delivery to pre-existing cytotoxic proteins. The principal O2- independent bactericidal system toward these… (More)
