Naive monocytes can trigger transendothelial migration of peripheral blood cells through the induction of endothelial tumour necrosis factor-alpha.

Abstract

In this manuscript we describe a potentially new mechanism by which unstimulated human monocytes activate endothelial cells (EC) through the secondary induction of endothelial tumour necrosis factor alpha (TNF-alpha). Serum free supernatants (SN) of peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) strongly induce the expression of intercellular adhesion molecule 1… (More)
