  1. 1. Storage organelles that are distinct from the classical granules in human neutrophils

    Author : Sara Pellmé; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : neutrophil; HL-60 cells; cytoplasts; granules; CXCL-8; ER; phagocytosis; HLA-I; subcellular fractionation; immunogold;

    Abstract : The human neutrophil is a crucial participant in acute inflammation. Appropriate immune response is dependent on rapid direction of phagocytic cells through the tissue, towards the inflammatory focus. Such movement is governed by chemoattractants, e.g. READ MORE
