Neutrophil phenotypic characteristics in children with congenital asplenia and splenectomized for hereditary spherocytosis.


The spleen plays an important role in the granulocyte homeostasis due to such mechanisms as pooling, elimination of senescent cells and regulatory effects on granulocyte renewal in the bone marrow. The expression profile of granulocyte receptors was tested in children with congenital asplenia, and splenectomized for spherocytosis. Receptors tested included… (More)
