BACKGROUND: We previously reported a profound long-term neuroprotection subsequent to a single radiation-therapy in the DBA/2J mouse model of glaucoma. This neuroprotection prevents entry of monocyte-like immune cells into the optic nerve head during glaucoma. Gene expression studies in radiation-treated mice implicated Glycam1 in this protection. Glycam1 encodes a proteoglycan ligand for L-selectin and is an excellent candidate to modulate immune cell entry into the eye. Here, we experimentally test the hypothesis that radiation-induced over-expression of Glycam1 is a key component of the neuroprotection...

The objectives of the current experiment were to investigate the effects of intrauterine treatment of cows with purulent vaginal discharge (PVD) using lipopolysaccharide (LPS) from Escherichia coli on uterine mRNA expression of genes related to inflammatory responses, peripheral polymorphonuclear leukocyte (PMN) function, hematological parameters, and blood concentrations of cortisol, haptoglobin, and progesterone (P4). Jersey cows (n = 3,084) were examined for PVD at 35 ± 6 d postpartum using the Metricheck device (Simcro, Hamilton, New Zealand)...

Identification of the structure-function relationship of heparin, particularly between 2-O-, 6-O-, and N-sulfation and its anticoagulant or anti-inflammatory activities, is critical in order to evaluate the biological effects of heparin, especially in conjunction with modifications for oral formulation. In this study, we demonstrated that removal of 2-O, 6-O, or N-desulfation and their hydrophobic modifications have differential effects on the blocking of interactions between sLeX and P-and L-selectins, with highest inhibition by 6-O desulfation, which was consistent with their in vivo therapeutic efficacies on CIA mice...

Healthy blood neutrophils are functionally quiescent in the bloodstream, have a short lifespan, and exit the circulation to carry out innate immune functions, or undergo rapid apoptosis and macrophage-mediated clearance to mitigate host tissue damage. Limitation of unnecessary intravascular neutrophil activation is also important to prevent serious inflammatory pathologies. Since neutrophils become easily activated after purification, we carried out ex vivo comparisons with neutrophils maintained in whole blood...

RATIONALE: Primary graft dysfunction in lung transplant recipients derives from the initial, largely leukocyte-dependent, ischaemia-reperfusion injury. Intravascular lung-marginated monocytes have been shown to play key roles in experimental acute lung injury, but their contribution to lung ischaemia-reperfusion injury post transplantation is unknown. OBJECTIVE: To define the role of donor intravascular monocytes in lung transplant-related acute lung injury and primary graft dysfunction...

This study was to investigate the differences of inflammatory reaction and oxidative stress due to sulfur mustard (SM)-induced acute pulmonary injury via two ways in rats. In intraperitoneal and tracheal SM groups, injected intraperitoneally and instilled intratracheally with 0.1mL diluted SM (0.96 LD50=8mg/kg) and SM (0.98 LD50=2mg/kg) were administered in rats. In bronchoalveolar lavage fluid, serum, and alveolar septum, lactate dehydrogenase, glutathione peroxidase, tumor necrosis factor-α, interleukin-1β, interleukin-6, C-reactive protein, intercellular adhesion molecule-1, vascular cell adhesion molecule-1, l-selectin, r-glutamyl transpeptidase, thiobarbituric acid reactive substances levels as well as the expression of CD4, CD20, CD68, 8-hydroxy deoxyguanosine, nuclear factor-E2-related factor 2, and heme oxygenase-1 measured by ELISA, immune scatter turbidimetry and immunohistochemical method in the intraperitoneal SM group were increased at each time-point compared with the tracheal SM groups, respectively...

Inflammation is a complex process involving the contribution of leukocytes and blood vessels, which collectively aim to restore homeostasis following injury to the body. Leukocytes are essential front-line responders to infectious or noninfectious injury and can be deployed within minutes of sensing damage. A typical inflammatory response leads to the exit of circulating leukocytes into the surrounding extravascular space, which follows a series of increasingly adhesive events - collectively termed the "multistep adhesion cascade...

Immune dysfunction has been implicated in the pathophysiology of schizophrenia. Leukocyte migration to the site of inflammation is a fundamental step of immune response which involves P-, E-, and L-selectins. Elevated selectin levels have been reported in un-medicated first-episode patients with schizophrenia but not in medicated patients with multi-episode schizophrenia. We measured fasting plasma soluble P-, E-, and L-selectin in 39 medicated patients with multi-episode schizophrenia and 19 healthy controls...

Both host defense and immunopathology are shaped by the ordered recruitment of circulating leukocytes to affected sites, a process initiated by binding of blood-borne cells to E-selectin displayed at target endothelial beds. Accordingly, knowledge of the expression and function of leukocyte E-selectin ligands is key to understanding the tempo and specificity of immunoreactivity. In this study, we performed E-selectin adherence assays under hemodynamic flow conditions coupled with flow cytometry and Western blot analysis to elucidate the function and structural biology of glycoprotein E-selectin ligands expressed on human PBMCs...

SCOPE: Postprandial triglyceride-rich lipoproteins (TRLs) promote atherosclerosis. Recent research points the bone marrow (BM) as a primary site in atherosclerosis. We elucidated how the acute administration of MUFAs, omega-3 PUFAs and saturated fatty acids (SFAs) affects human circulating and murine BM neutrophil lipid accumulation and functionality. METHODS AND RESULTS: Postprandial hypertriglyceridemia was induced in healthy subjects and Apoe-/- mice by the acute administration of dietary fats enriched in MUFAs, PUFAs or SFAs...

Spinal glial cell activation and cytokine secretion have been implicated in the etiology of neuropathic pain in a number of experimental models, including diabetic neuropathy. In this study, streptozotocin- (STZ-) induced diabetic rats were either untreated or treated with gabapentin (50 mg/kg/day by gavage for 2 weeks, from 6 weeks after STZ). At 8 weeks after STZ, hypersensitivity was confirmed in the untreated diabetic rats as a reduced response threshold to touch, whilst mechanical thresholds in gabapentin-treated diabetic rats were no different from controls...

A growing body of evidence suggests that L-selectin ligands presented on circulating tumor cells facilitate metastasis by binding L-selectin presented on leukocytes. Commonly used methods for detecting L-selectin ligands on tissues, e.g., immunostaining, are performed under static, no-flow conditions. However, such analysis does not assay for functional L-selectin ligands, specifically those ligands that promote adhesion under shear flow conditions. Recently our lab developed a method, termed dynamic biochemical tissue analysis (DBTA), to detect functional selectin ligands in situ by probing tissues with L-selectin-coated microspheres under hemodynamic flow conditions...

L-selectin regulates leukocyte adhesion and rolling along the endothelium. Proteins binding to the cytoplasmic tail of L-selectin regulate L-selectin functions. We used L-selectin cytoplasmic tail peptide pulldown assays combined with high sensitivity liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry to identify novel L-selectin tail-binding proteins. Incubation of the L-selectin tail with cell extracts from phorbol 12-myristate 13-acetate-stimulated Raw 264.7 macrophages resulted in the binding of μ1A of the clathrin-coated vesicle AP-1 complex...

Substance P (SP) was reported to be associated with eczema and acts as a potent skin mast cell secretagogue. However, little is known of its expression in inflammatory cells in eczema and its ability in induction of mast cell accumulation. In the present study, we investigated expression of SP and neurokinin-1 receptor (NK1R) on peripheral blood leukocytes and mast cells from patients with eczema and influence of SP on mast cell accumulation by using flow cytometry analysis, trans-epithelial cell migration assay and mouse peritoneal model...

l-selectin is a transmembrane receptor expressed on the surface of white blood cells and responsible for the tethering of leukocytes to vascular endothelial cells. This initial intercellular contact is the first step of the complex leukocyte adhesion cascade that ultimately permits extravasation of leukocytes into the surrounding tissue in case of inflammation. Here we show the binding of a soluble histidine tagged l-selectin to a recently described shortened variant of an l-selectin specific DNA aptamer with surface plasmon resonance...

Selectins are a family of calcium-dependent, type I transmembrane, carbohydrate-binding glycoproteins. Selectins and their ligands are not only involved in physiological processes such as leukocyte homing and pathological processes such as cancer, but also play an essential role in the human implantation. L-selectin and its ligands participate in the adhesion of the blastocyst to the endometrium at the maternal-fetal interface. P-selectin and E-selectin are involved in immune recognition of maternal decidua to the embedded embryo as well as trophoblast migration within decidual spiral arterioles...

BACKGROUND: Though the presence of platelets-derived microparticles (MPs) have previously been described in heparin-induced thrombocytopenia (HIT), the mechanism of thrombosis in HIT remains poorly understood. We aimed to assess the presence and origin of MPs in patients with HIT and their possible contribution to HIT with thrombosis (HITT). METHODS: Forty-five patients with HIT and 45 matched hospitalized patients with not confirmed HIT (HIT-negative) were enrolled...

Selectin interactions with fucosylated glycan ligands mediate leukocyte rolling in the vasculature under shear forces. Crystal structures of P- and E-selectin suggest a two-state model in which ligand binding to the lectin domain closes loop 83-89 around the Ca(2+) coordination site, enabling Glu-88 to engage Ca(2+) and fucose. This triggers further allostery that opens the lectin/EGF domain hinge. The model posits that force accelerates transition from the bent (low affinity) to the extended (high affinity) state...
