The role of Mac-1 (CD11b/CD18) in antigen-induced airway eosinophilia in mice.


Mac-1 (CD11b/CD18) is an important adhesion molecule involved in the migration of leukocytes, cell signaling, and subsequent secretory responses. Its precise role in eosinophil recruitment and activation in vivo is not entirely clear. We wished to directly examine the role of Mac-1 in eosinophil migration in a murine model of allergic pulmonary inflammation… (More)
