Tamm-Horsfall protein (THP) is a glycoprotein uniquely expressed in the kidney. We recently showed an important role for THP in mediating tubular cross-talk in the outer medulla and in suppressing neutrophil infiltration after kidney injury. However, it remains unclear whether THP has a broader role in neutrophil homeostasis. In this study, we show that THP deficiency in mice increases the number of neutrophils, not only in the kidney but also in the circulation and in the liver, through… CONTINUE READING
