Title: Morphological responses of neutrophils in suspension to plasma components and chemotactic factors / Damien Gerard Harkin.
Author: Harkin, Damien Gerard
Issue Date: 1992
School/Discipline: Dept. of Medicine
Abstract: Examines the time course and degree of neutrophil polarisation in plasma and compares this response with those induced by FMLP, purified plasma proteins (particularly immunoglobulin type G) and chemotactic imflammatory mediators. In addition, the possible roles of extracellular divalent cations (Ca2+ and Mg2+), intracellular Ca2+ ions and actin microfilament distribution during responses to each stimulus are examined.
