Non-chemotactic translocation of phagocytic cells mediated by a fibronectin-related human lymphokine.

A fibronectin (FN)-related human lymphokine, macrophage agglutination factor (MAggF), agglutinates monocytes at femtomolar concentrations. Similar concentrations of MAggF translocate monocytes and neutrophils through artificial extracellular matrices by a non-chemotactic adhesive process not dependent on intracellular metabolism (matrix-driven translocation… CONTINUE READING
