Technical Data
Neutrophils, Apoptotic
Neutrophils are recruited in large numbers to inflammation sites. Clearance of these cells from the inflammatory site is done by programmed cell death (apoptosis) of the neutrophil. As a consequence, many cellular mechanisms are down-regulated in the apoptotic neutrophil such as: adhesion, chemotaxis, phagocytosis, enzyme secretion, generation of a respiratory burst, and responsiveness to external stimuli. Changes in the cell surface of dying neutrophils are recognized by macrophages, which destroy the neutrophils by phagocytosis. Many changes in the amount of proteins, carbohydrates and lipids on the surface of neutrophils are associated with the apoptotic event. Apoptotic Neutrophils (BOB78) is an up-regulated protein, molecular weight 90 kDa, that appears in the granular compartment of the late apoptotic neutrophil. This antigen does not appear in freshly isolated erythrocytes, platelets, lymphocytes, monocytes, or neutrophils. Monoclonal antibodies specific for BOB78 are a useful tool for studying the biology of apoptotic neutrophils.
