Lack of TNF-α-induced MMP-9 production and abnormal E-cadherin redistribution associated with compromised fusion in MCP-1-null macrophages.

Abstract

Homotypic cell fusion occurs in several cell types including macrophages in the formation of foreign body giant cells. Previously, monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 (MCP-1) was demonstrated to be required for foreign body giant cell formation in the foreign body response. The present study investigated the fusion defect in MCP-1-null macrophages by… (More)
