The alpha 4 beta 1 (very late antigen (VLA)-4, CD49d/CD29) and alpha 5 beta 1 (VLA-5, CD49e/CD29) integrins mediate beta 2 (CD11/CD18) integrin-independent neutrophil recruitment to endotoxin-induced lung inflammation.

The beta(2) integrin cell adhesion molecules (CAM) mediate polymorphonuclear leukocyte (PMNL) emigration in most inflamed tissues, but, in the lung, other yet to be identified CAMs appear to be involved. In Lewis rats, the intratracheal injection of Escherichia coli-LPS induced acute (6-h) PMNL accumulation in the lung parenchyma (280 x 10(6) by myeloperoxidase assay; PBS control = 35 x 10(6)) and bronchoalveolar lavage fluid (BALF = 27 x 10(6); PBS = 0.1 x 10(6)). Parenchymal accumulation was… CONTINUE READING
