Chemotaxis and directed locomotion of neutrophil leucocytes are generally thought to be determined by the directed response of the cell to stable, spatial gradients of chemoattractants. In most cases, however, cells are also exposed to characteristic temporal changes in the attractant concentration during the lifetime of the gradient, especially as it develops. We have attempted to test whether neutrophils can respond to a spatial gradient in which these temporal changes are essentially absent… CONTINUE READING
