    Isolation of Microvesicles from Human Circulating Neutrophils
    [Abstract]

    Neutrophil-derived microvesicles (NDMVs) are liberated by neutrophils upon cell activation by molecules. Once activated, neutrophils are primarily involved in acute inflammation; however, the microvesicles they produce are largely anti-inflammatory. NDMVs have been shown to protect cartilage during inflammatory arthritis. They exert these effects

    Isolation and High Throughput Flow Cytometric Apoptosis Assay of Human Neutrophils to Enable Compound Library Screening
    Authors:  K. D. Herman, A. Rahman and L. R. Prince, date: 06/05/2020, view: 3270, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] The study of human neutrophils in vitro is challenging due to their short half-life and propensity for activation. However, with careful handling and manipulation in the laboratory, they can be a powerful tool to investigate immune responses in health and disease. Here we describe a method for the isolation of human neutrophils from ...
    Isolation of Neutrophil Nuclei for Use in NETosis Assays
    Author:  Dave Boucher, date: 09/05/2019, view: 4050, Q&A: 0
    [Abstract] Neutrophils are critical immune cells that protect our body against invading pathogens. They generate antibacterial DNA structures called neutrophil extracellular traps (NET). Recently we identified a new mechanism that enables NET formation. We observed that following recognition of lipopolysaccharides, inflammatory caspases cleave Gasdermin D ...
