Mediator responses of alveolar macrophages and kinetics of mononuclear phagocyte subset recruitment during acute primary and secondary mycobacterial infections in the lungs of mice.


Little is known about the activation programme induced in alveolar macrophages upon phagocytosis of mycobacteria and the concomitant mononuclear phagocyte migratory responses that shape the acute phase of mycobacterial infection. Using high-speed cell sorting in conjunction with real-time RT-PCR analysis, we show that sorted alveolar macrophages of… (More)
