These glycoproteins possess a common β subunit (CD18) noncovalently bound to one of three distinct α subunits: CD11a (LFA-1) CD11b (Mo1 Mac-1) or CD11c (gp150) The CD11/CD18 (β2) integrin adhesion molecule on the neutrophil binds to the endothelium-associated complement opsonizing particle iC3b mediating a firm adhesion between the neutrophil and endothelial cell The opsonizing

Activation-induced conformational changes in the I domain region of lymphocyte function-associated antigen 1 Simultaneous targeting of anti-LFA-1 and anti-CD154 leads not only to improved islet allograft survival in high-responder recipients but it also results in the unexpected generation of dominant transferable transplantation tolerance Cell-to-Cell adhesion via intercellular adhesion

LFA-1 is sufficient in mediating neutrophil emigration in Mac-1-deficient mice H Lu C W Smith J Perrard D Bullard L Treatment with mAb to LFA-1 blocked 78% of neutrophil accumulation in Mac-1-deficient mice and 58% in wild-type mice Neutrophil emigration into the peritoneal cavity 16 h after the implantation of fibrinogen-coated disks was not reduced in Mac-1-deficient mice whereas

Leukocyte function-associated molecule-1 (LFA-1) plays an essential role in cell-cell interactions in the immune system LFA-1 may be activated by conformational changes and by clustering In this study the role of lipid rafts in the regulation of LFA-1 was investigated Lipid rafts are plasma membrane microdomains enriched in cholesterol and ganglioside GM1 and they are thought to regulate

SCHISTOSOMIASIS Schistosomiasis is a helminthic disease which causes considerable morbidity and mortality worldwide (WHO 1993) Infection of a susceptible host with the blood fluke Schistosoma mansoni results in the release of parasite eggs in the mesenteric and portal venous system leading to entrapment of these eggs in the perisinusoidal spaces of the liver and in the intestinal wall

10 01 2012This function requires that the host have sufficient numbers of neutrophils that respond to chemotactic stimuli and ingest and kill bacteria Chronic granulomatous disease (CGD) of childhood was the first qualitative neutrophil abnormality described In this disorder neutrophils are capable of ingesting but not killing certain microorganisms Neutrophil dysfunction may arise from (1) absence

Additionally LFA-1-mediated adhesion of mouse thymocytes (Krauss and Altevogt 1999) and human T-cell adhesion through LFA-1 and α4β1 (Leitinger and Hogg 2002) is abolished when lipid rafts are disrupted by the extraction of cholesterol with methyl-β-cyclodextrin These data suggest that activation of integrins results in their localization to a lipid raft compartment and that this

LFA-1 (leukocyte functional antigen-1) – an integrin consisting of an α chain (CD11a) and a β chain (CD18) that acts as an intercellular adhesion molecule by binding to ICAM-1 ICAM-2 and ICAM-3 It has a role in leukocyte migration across vascular endothelium and in antigen presentation MHC (major histocompatibility complex) – a genetic region found in all mammals encoding more than

Vasculitis is defined simply as blood vessel inflammation Many different inflammatory diseases that damage vascular tissue have been described (Table 1) The pathogenetic mechanisms that lead to localized vascular injury and inflammation have been actively studied Much of this work has been devoted to identifying the stimuli that initiate lesion formation in various vasculitic diseases

that resulted in defective cell migration In contrast signaling through LFA-1 was not affected in Lfa-1 d/d cells T cell activation by superantigen-loaded and allogeneic APCs cytotoxic T cell activity T-dependent humoral immune responses and neutrophil recruitment during aseptic peritonitis were impaired in Lfa-1 d/d mice Thus deactivation of LFA-1 and disassembly of LFA-1–mediated

The Neutrophil: An Emerging Regulator of Inflammatory

The author discusses the mediators and molecular interactions that are potentially involved in mediating neutrophil-induced alteration in vascular permeability The second one written by Benelli et al deals with a novel and in a certain sense unpredictable function of neutrophils i e their ability to directly regulate the angiogenic process On taking into account the information

Since Aβ enhanced the affinity state of LFA-1 the authors concluded that the increased neutrophil adhesion was likely dependent on the effects of Aβ on LFA-1 Binding of neutrophils to ICAM-1 on brain endothelial cells could lead to neutrophil transmigration into the brain parenchyma In AD mice that were LFA-1 deficient neutrophils did not infiltrate the brain parenchyma indicating that

The consequences of age-associated involution are obvious: emigration of lymphocytes from the thymus decreases dramatically from for instance 1 6 10 6 /day in one-month-old mice to 4 10 4 /day in one-year-old mice (Stutman 1986 Shortman et al 1990) Apparently the persistent generation of a new antigen- recognition repertoire in the T-cell population of adults is not needed

Nonclassical monocytes patrol the microvascular lumen in numerous organs in behavior thought to represent a form of immune surveillance However the mechanisms whereby they promote inflammatory responses are unclear Here we show using in vivo imaging that in the unique microvasculature of the glomerulus in the kidney monocytes constitutively undergo interactions with intravascular

Neutrophil inhibitory factor (NIF) NIF is a 41 kDa glycoprotein isolated from canine hookworm Ancylosto ma caninum [119] It binds to the I domain of Mac 1 integrin with high affinity and blocks the Mac 1 binding to several ligands such as C3bi ICAM 1 and fibrinogen [119] It is shown to block neutrophils adhesion to protein coated surfaces and inhibit neutrophil functions [120] In sev eral
