The production and deployment of phagocytes are central functions of the hematopoietic system. In the 1950s, radioisotopic studies demonstrated the high production rate and short lifespan of neutrophils and allowed researchers to follow the monocytes as they moved from the marrow through the blood to become tissue macrophages, histiocytes, and dendritic cells. Subsequently, the discovery of the colony-stimulating factors greatly improved understanding the regulation of phagocyte production. The… Expand
Phagocytes in Inflammation
TLDR
Neutrophils and macrophages are phagocytic cells that comprise the cellular components of the mammalian innate immune system and can exacerbate disease when their antimicrobial constituents are released inappropriately or excessively. Expand
Neutrophils and Macrophages: the Main Partners of Phagocyte Cell Systems
TLDR
The justifications behind the inclusion of neutrophils in a phagocyte system are expanded and the MYPS are further characterized as a group of dedicated phagocytic cells that function in an interacting and cooperative way in the host defense against microbial infection. Expand
The macrophage.
TLDR
The following chapter aims to provide an overview of how macrophage and their parent cell-type, monocytes, are classified, their development through the myeloid lineage, and finally, the general function of macrophages. Expand
Production of inflammatory mediators and extracellular traps by carp macrophages and neutrophils in response to lipopolysaccharide and/or interferon-γ2.
TLDR
Results substantiate that a classical stimulation of TLR4 by LPS may indeed be absent in carp as most of the classically reported LPS effects are abolished or diminished when pLPS is used and observe a potent IL-10 expression in neutrophilic granulocytes upon LPS stimulation, which clearly indicates a role in restrictive control of the inflammatory reaction. Expand
Dangerous connections: neutrophils and the phagocytic clearance of activated platelets
TLDR
A bona-fide synapse assembles as a consequence of the interaction between P-selectin and its counter-receptor on neutrophils, with clustering of activated β2 integrins into membrane microdomains and reorganization of cytoskeleton components that control cell motility and phagocytosis. Expand
Role of granule proteases in the life and death of neutrophils.
TLDR
It now emerges that neutral serine proteases such as cathepsin G and proteinase-3 also contribute to the neutrophil life cycle, but do so via different pathways than that of the aspartate protease cat hepsin D and that of mutants of theserine protease elastase. Expand
Intracellular Radicals in Neutrophils Processing and Functional Implications
Neutrophils are the most abundant leukocyte in human blood and essential components of our defense against microbial pathogens. These cells can neutralize microbial pathogens by phagocytosis, whichExpand
Neutrophil biology within hepatic environment
TLDR
The basic concepts of neutrophils ontogeny and biology are discussed, with a focus on the particularities and the molecular steps involved in neutrophil recruitment to the liver. Expand
Crosstalk between Sentinel and Helper Macrophages Permits Neutrophil Migration into Infected Uroepithelium
TLDR
Findings identify helper macrophages and TNF as critical regulators in innate immunity against bacterial infections in epithelia, reminiscent of the licensing role of helper T cells in antiviral adaptive immunity. Expand
5.06 – Phagocytes
TLDR
Elucidating the contribution of phagocytic cells and inflammatory mediators to tissue injury and repair may help in the design of new and effective approaches to mitigating xenobiotic-induced pathologies. Expand

TLDR
It is concluded that the MPO system plays an important role in the microbicidal activity of phagocytes and the role of theMPO system in tissue injury. Expand
Novel cytochrome b system in phagocytic vacuoles of human granulocytes
TLDR
A cytochrome b system which becomes incorporated into the phagocytic vacuoles of human neutrophils, and abnormalities in patients with CGD implicate it as an essential component of the microbicidal oxidase system. Expand
DIFFERENTIATION OF MONOCYTES : Origin, Nature, and Fate of Their Azurophil Granules
TLDR
It appears that the monocyte produces two types of primary lysosomes during different phases of its life cycle—azurophil granules made by developing monocytes in bone marrow or blood, and coated vesicles made by macrophages in tissues and body cavities. Expand
THE ORIGIN AND KINETICS OF MONONUCLEAR PHAGOCYTES
TLDR
It was concluded that the rapidly dividing mononuclear phagocytes of the bone marrow, called promonocytes, are the progenitor cells of the monocytes and give rise to peritoneal macrophages. Expand
THE DIFFERENTIATION OF MONONUCLEAR PHAGOCYTES MORPHOLOGY, CYTOCHEMISTRY, AND BIOCHEMISTRY
TLDR
From data, it appears that the conversion of a monocyte-like cell to a mature macrophage is accompanied by the formation of increased numbers of lysosome-like cytoplasmic organelles. Expand
The Role of the Macrophage in Apoptosis: Hunter, Gatherer, and Regulator
TLDR
It is possible that certain malignant tumor cells co-opt the mechanisms for apoptotic cell clearance to avoid immune surveillance by subverting macrophage and dendritic cell responses. Expand

Key structural and functional features of the neutrophil NADPH oxidase and its protein components are described, including a consideration of transcriptional and post‐translational regulatory features. Expand

TLDR
This review focuses on recently published work regarding signaling pathways that regulate neutrophil apoptosis and can be accelerated both in the presence and in the absence of survival factors by activation of distinct members of the tumor necrosis factor/nerve growth factor receptor family.

TLDR
It is suggested that activation of neutrophils by TLRs is highly regulated, permitting acute neutrophil antimicrobial responses to TLR activation while providing a "brake" on inflammation by requiring the presence of mononuclear cells to significantly extend neutrophIL survival. Expand
THE DEVELOPMENT OF NEUTROPHILIC POLYMORPHONUCLEAR LEUKOCYTES IN HUMAN BONE MARROW
TLDR
The findings indicate that the situation is basically the same as described previously in the rabbit, insofar as the origin, enzymic activity, and persistence in the mature cell of the two types of granules are concerned. Expand
