Nitric oxide inhibits neutrophil adhesion to cytokine-activated cardiac myocytes.

Abstract

Neutrophils play important roles in myocardial injury in which an inflammatory reaction ensues. We investigated the role of nitric oxide (NO) in neutrophil adhesion to cardiac myocytes. Isolated adult rat myocytes were coincubated with human neutrophils, and the number of neutrophils adherent to myocytes was microscopically counted. The adhesion increased… (More)
