    The article provides information on neutropenia and neutrophils. Neutrophils are the major phagocytic cells that ingest and kill pathogens. Neutropenia is defined as an abolute low neutropil count. A low count should be confirmed with a repeat test on a fresh specimen because a delay in...

    Differentiation of neutrophil granulocytes (neutrophils) occurs through several steps in the bone marrow and requires a coordinate regulation of factors determining survival and lineage-specific development. A number of genes are known whose deficiency disrupts neutrophil generation in humans...

    Phagocytes are activated by several extracellular signals, including formylpeptides derived from bacterial proteins or disrupted cells. The most intensely studied member of the formylpeptide family is the synthetic tripeptide N-formyl-L-methionyl-L-leucyl-Lphenylalanine (fMLP), whose specific...

    Polymorphonuclear neutrophils (PMNs) are attracted to sites of infection by N-formylpeptide (fMLP) chemoattractants. The high-affinity fMLP receptor (FPR1) of phagocytic cells interacts with bacterial fMLP and mediates chemotaxis, degranulation, and superoxide production. These cellular...
