Quantitative comparisons of various biological responses of neutrophils to different active and inactive chemotactic factors.


The effects of chemotactic factors on rabbit neutrophils were evaluated measuring cell migration in modified Boyden chambers and under agarose, in lysosomal enzyme release, leukocyte aggregation, and in vivo neutropenia. Chemotactins employed included the complement-derived C3 and C5 fragments, the bacterial chemotactic factor from culture supernatant… (More)
