Abstract: The chemotactic recruitment of neutrophils, the most abundant white blood cell in human circulation, to sites of infection and inflammation, is dependent upon a gradient of chemoattractants released from cells at the inflamed area. The chemoattractants, including formyl peptides, are recognized by G-protein coupled chemoattractant receptors (GPCRs) present on the neutrophil surface. Activation of GPCRs in neutrophils mediates chemotaxis, but also granule mobilization and the generation of reacti... more
