TY - JOUR. T1 - Selective reduction of human tumor cell populations by human granulocytes in vitro. AU - Townsend, Courtney. AU - Townsend, C. M.. AU - Galbraith, M. A.. AU - Eilber, F. R.. AU - Morton, D. L.. PY - 1978. Y1 - 1978. N2 - Human peripheral blood granulocytes at a 10:1 effector cell:target cell ratio were shown by an in vitro semiquantitative staining procedure to reduce the number of human tumor cells, but not that of normal cells. Microscopic observations revealed that this selective reduction of tumor cells by granulocytes was a function of both detachment and cytolysis. The cytotoxic effect of granulocytes on the tumor cells was confirmed by a quantitative 5-[ 125I]iodo-2-deoxyuridine release assay. The data indicate that human granulocytes at a relatively low effector:target cell ratio (10:1) have the capacity to recognize and destroy human tumor cells in vitro.. AB - Human peripheral blood granulocytes at a 10:1 effector cell:target cell ratio were shown by an in vitro ...
Granulocytes are the major type of phagocytes constituting the front line of innate immune defense against bacterial infection. to treat serious infection in alcoholic patients with the disorder of granulopoieis. This article reviews the recent development in understanding alcohol-induced disruption of marrow granulopoiesis and the granulopoietic response with the focus on progress in delineating cell signaling mechanisms underlying the alcohol-induced injury to hematopoietic tissue. Attempts in exploring effective therapy to boost individual treatment Larotaxel with this field shall also end up being discussed. tradition of marrow cells from regular individuals in nutritional medium containing alcoholic beverages can induce cytoplasmic vacuolization (Yeung, et al., 1988). The essential alcoholic beverages focus for inducing vacuolization can be 62.5 mg/dl. The percentage of cells developing vacuoles shows up correlating using the focus of alcoholic beverages. In the center, vacuolization in ...
To the editor: In a recent article, Winston and associates (1) presented data that led them to conclude that therapeutic granulocyte transfusions offered no substantial benefit over optimal antimicrobial therapy alone in managing infected patients with granulocytopenia. We have difficulty extrapolating their observations to granulocyte transfusion therapy as given at our institution (2) and others (3) where doses of three to six times as many granulocytes are administered routinely. The authors have criticized other randomized trials of granulocyte transfusions in neutropenic patients for having too few patients. We find the major weakness of this study to be too few granulocytes ...
The anti-CD11/CD18 monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) submitted in the Second International Workshop on Ruminant Leukocyte Differentiation Antigens, were analysed for their reactivity with the ovine homologue of CD11/CD18. Their reactivity was tested on healthy sheep tissues, and alveolar macrophages, afferent dendritic cells, peripheral blood granulocytes and monocytes. The CD11a/CD18 mAbs found positive in the sheep were reactive with all the cell populations tested. The CD11b mAbs reacted with all the cells except afferent dendritic cells, whereas CD11c were non-reactive to blood granulocytes. This is in contrast to humans and cattle where blood granulocytes express CD11c. PMID: 8310662. ...
We are at the hospital every day, sometimes two or three times a day if the day includes labs and doctors visits in addition to the daily two hour infusion of anti-fungal medicine. This medicine can cause a drop in potassium, so each morning we arrive to check Phoebes potassium and then return hours later for the medicine. We try to time this around meal times and quality time so that it doesnt feel like we are always at the hospital. The days that include infusions of granulocytes are especially busy and include an overnight stay at the hospital. The granulocytes need to be given 12 hours after the antifungal medicine, so on these days, Jon brings Phoebe in to the medicine room at 4 am and I arrive at the hospital at 8:30am to donate granulocytes. The donation process takes about two and a half hours and the granulocytes are started once we are admitted to the in patient unit in the early evening. Its busy. Right now we are giving granulocytes once a week on Fridays and Im hoping that I can ...
Granulocytes are a category of white blood cells characterized by the presence of granules in their cytoplasm. They are also called polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMN, PML, or PMNL) because of the varying shapes of the nucleus, which is usually lobed into three segments. This distinguishes them from the mononuclear agranulocytes. In common parlance, the term polymorphonuclear leukocyte often refers specifically to neutrophil granulocytes, the most abundant of the granulocytes; the other types (…

Fucosyltransferase (FT) activity of normal lymphocytes, normal granulocytes, and various types of human leukemic cells and electrofocusing pattern of FT activity in human leukemic cells and normal lymphocytes were examined using asialofetuin as an acceptor. Levels of FT activity in normal lymphocytes were higher than those of normal granulocytes in which FT activity was almost undetectable. The FT activity was higher in blast cells of acute myeloblastic leukemia and chronic myelogenous leukemia in blast crisis than in blast cells of acute lymphoblastic leukemia and the chronic phase of chronic myelogenous leukemia. The level of FT activity was lower in cells of chronic lymphocytic leukemia than that of normal lymphocytes, but it was higher than that of normal granulocytes. Three main isoelectric forms of FT in leukemic blast cells were identified by isoelectrofocusing, and they each had a characteristic focusing point: around pH 4.5 (peak 1); pH 4.9 (peak 2); and pH 5.2 (peak 3). In blast cells ...
A leukocyte that has granules in its cytoplasm. A type of white Blood cell that attacks and destroys foreign substances. These are leukocytes which have specific granules. The three different types of granulocytes have different types of specific granules. Granulocytes are spherical in shape, contain nuclei and include neutrophils, eosinophils, and basophils. These cells are part of the formed elements of whole Blood. ...
Granulocytes are released from the bone marrow and make up the major group of leukocytes in the blood. They represent a heterogeneous population of myeloid innate immune cells characterized by the presence of intracellular granules as well as segmented and lobed nuclei of various shapes. Therefore, they are also referred to as polymorphonuclear cells (PMNC). Recently, along with their well described involvement in inflammation, they have also been shown capable of antigen presentation. Miltenyi Biotec provides numerous tools for granulocyte research, including standardized and automated enrichment of viable and fully functional cells, a pre-requisite to obtain high quality and reproducible data ...

Neutrophils are terminally differentiated phagocytic cells that represent the first line of defense against pathogens. The study of neutrophils in vitro is difficult owing to a short life span. Immortalized cell line models fail to recapitulate all the effector functions of primary cells. Furthermore, the study of murine neutrophil function in vivo is limited by the lack of a model system that can be genetically manipulated (e.g. gene knockout or overexpression) ex vivo. We describe here the development and use of conditionally immortalized granulocyte/macrophage progenitor cells (GMP) capable of unlimited expansion, genetically tractable, and that can be transplanted into mice to study neutrophil function in vivo. These GMP cell lines were derived from UBC-GFP mice by the transduction of an MSCVneo ER-HoxB8 retrovirus such that factor-dependent cell lines emerge in the presence of stem cell factor and b-estradiol (E2). Upon removal of E2 in vitro or transplantation into irradiated recipients, ...
Further optimization of the LG7455 structure series could lead to a new generation of orally-available small-molecule human GCSFR agonists for the treatment of neutropenia. "We are pleased to feature exciting data from one of our novel programs in Ligands internal un-partnered pipeline," said Matthew W. Foehr, Chief Operating Officer of Ligand Pharmaceuticals. "Our R&D team continues Ligands rich heritage of being at the forefront of new areas of drug discovery and development. This first-in-class program may provide the most significant innovation in the treatment of neutropenia since the approval of the first GCSF biologic in the early 1990s." About Ligands Small- Molecule GCSF Program GCSF is a glycoprotein growth factor and cytokine produced by different tissues to stimulate the bone marrow to produce granulocytes and stem cells. GCSF acts on its homodimeric receptor (GCSFR) to stimulate proliferation of granulocytic progenitor cells and induce their survival and differentiation into ...
The effect of beta adrenergic agents on granulocyte deformability was investigated using the filtration technique. Three groups of granulocytes were studied: 1) cells treated with isoproterenol (10−6 to 10−3 M); 2) cells treated with propranolol (10−
The RARα gene is invariably involved in the APL-associated chromosomal translocations (1, 2). Therefore, alteration of RARα pathway has been thought to play a central role in APL pathogenesis. Indeed, RA inhibits the proliferation of hematopoietic precursors and promotes the terminal granulocytic differentiation of granulocyte/monocyte progenitors and multipotent erythroid/monocytic cells. Vitamin A deficiency, unligated RARα, RARα antagonist, or DN RARα can block myeloid differentiation (23). Moreover, the X-RARα fusion proteins can block differentiation when overexpressed in myeloid leukemia cell lines such as U937 cells and interference with PML function seems not to be required for this function (20, 21). These observations support the notion that DN blockade of the RARα pathway is crucial for APL leukemogenesis. Our in vivo genetic analysis challenges this notion, allowing us to reach three major conclusions.. The first major conclusion is that HDAC1-dependent DN blockade of RARα ...
Granulocytes, the most abundant types of leukocytes, are the first line of defense against pathogen invasion. However, the plasticity and diversity of granulocytes have been increasingly revealed, especially with regards to their versatile functions in orchestrating adaptive immune responses. A substantial body of recent evidence demonstrates that granulocytes can acquire the function as antigen-presenting cells (APC) under pathological or inflammatory conditions. In addition, they can acquire surface expression of MHC class II and co-stimulatory molecules as well as T cell stimulatory behavior when cultured with selected cytokines. The classic view of granulocytes as terminally differentiated, short-lived phagocytes, is therefore changing to phenotypically and functionally heterogeneous cells that are engaged in cross-talk with other leucocyte populations and provide an additional link between innate and adaptive immunity. In this brief review, we summarize the current knowledge on the antigen
Chronic myeloid leukaemia (CML) is a rare type of cancer affecting mostly adults. It is a cancer of granulocytes (one of the main types of white blood cells). In CML too many granulocytes are produced and they are released into the blood when they are immature and unable to work properly. The immature white blood cells are known as blasts. The production of other types of blood cells is also disrupted. Normally, white blood cells repair and reproduce themselves in an orderly and controlled manner, but in chronic myeloid leukaemia the process gets out of control and the cells continue to divide and mature abnormally. The disease usually develops very slowly, which is why it is called chronic myeloid leukaemia.

Leukaemias and other cancers possess a rare population of cells capable of the limitless self-renewal necessary for cancer initiation and maintenance. Here we show that leukaemia stem cells (LSC) can maintain the global identity of the progenitor from which they arose while activating a limited stem-cell- or self-renewal-associated programme. We isolated LSC from leukaemias initiated in committed granulocyte macrophage progenitors through introduction of the MLL-AF9 fusion protein encoded by the t(9;11)(p22;q23). The LSC were capable of transferring leukaemia to secondary recipient mice when only four cells were transferred, and possessed an immunophenotype and global gene expression profile very similar to that of normal granulocyte macrophage progenitors. However, a subset of genes highly expressed in normal haematopoietic stem cells was re-activated in LSC. LSC can thus be generated from committed progenitors without widespread reprogramming of gene expression, and a leukaemia ...
Leukemia affects two types of white blood cells that are responsible for protecting the body from disease: lymphocytes and granulocytes. Leukemias that affect lymphocytes are known as "lymphocytic" or "lymphoblastic," and those that affect granulocytes are called "myeloid" or "myelogenous" leukemias ...

What is an IG count? With the exception of blood from neonates or pregnant women, the appearance of immature granulocytes in the peripheral blood indicates an early-stage response to infection, inflammation or other stimuli of the bone marrow. Being able to detect them quickly and reliably opens doors to new diagnostic possibilities for related disorders. Current areas of research regarding the diagnostic significance of circulating immature granulocytes focus on the early and rapid discrimination of bacterial from viral infections, particularly in children, recognising bacterial infection in neonates, and the early recognition of bacterial infection and sepsis in adults, which is of vital importance in particular for intensive care patients. Valuable information for immediate action - at no additional cost IG counts are relevant especially for patients who are highly susceptible to infections because of a suppressed immune system and because the increased IG count indicates the severity of the ...
The team used intervention, granulocyte/monocyte apheresis with the Adacolumn Apheresis System or sham apheresis in a 2:1 ratio for 9 weeks of treatment in a North American pivotal study.. The research team also conducted a smaller, companion study of identical design in Europe and Japan including 47 patients.. The researchers found in the pivotal study, that clinical remission rates were 17% and 11% for the granulocyte/monocyte apheresis- and sham-treatment groups, respectively.. The team observed clinical response in 44% and 39% of the granulocyte/monocyte apheresis- and sham-treatment groups, respectively.. Similar changes were observed for the apheresis- and sham-treatment groups for endoscopic remission and response, and changes in Mayo and quality-of-life scores.. The researchers noted that the companion study and pooled data from both studies also yielded similar results.. Dr Sands team concluded, "In this study, granulocyte/monocyte apheresis was well tolerated but did not demonstrate ...

The recovery, structure and function of dog granulocytes were determined before and after freeze preservation. Leucocytes were isolated from defibrinated or anticoagulated whole blood and subsequent erythrocyte sedimentation on a column of 2:1 dextran (6%)-Isopaque (33.9%). Granulocytes isolated by these procedures were examined for changes in O2 consumption associated with phagocytosis, in vitro directed migration (chemotaxis), bactericidal activity, and ultrastructure before and after freezing. Granulocytes were frozen in DMSO (7.5%) and autologous serum of HBSS and 20% autologous serum at the rate of -1 C/min to -80 C and stored in liquid N2 vapor. It is concluded that dog granulocytes freeze preserved by these methods are functional in vitro, but that phagocytic, directed migration, and bactericidal functions and ultrastructure are impaired to different degrees, according to the method of isolation and preparation for storage. These results indicate the need for continued investigation on the

RD is a rare and life-threatening disease affecting infants in the immediate newborn period. Although previous studies have shown that mutations in the AK2 gene are responsible for RD, the rarity of this condition and the lack of suitable animal and cellular models have represented significant obstacles to defining its molecular and cellular pathophysiology. Here we describe ak2 mutant zebrafish and patient-derived iPSCs as platforms to investigate the effects of AK2 mutations on hematopoiesis and to explore novel therapeutic approaches.. Manipulations of AK activity in different organisms results in impaired adenine nucleotide homeostasis, block of ATP export from mitochondria, and reduced cell growth and metabolism, as well as increased susceptibility to metabolic stress (Bandlow et al., 1988; Janssen et al., 2000; Pucar et al., 2000, 2002). Impairment of AK2 activity in humans leads to the severe lymphocyte and granulocyte differentiation defects and sensorineural deafness characteristic for ...
A surfactant in Stromatolyser-4DL causes lysis of red blood cells. At the same time, the cell membranes of white blood cells are slightly perforated.. The polymethine fluorescence marker Stromatolyser-4DS migrates into the WBC and binds in particular to nucleic acids and cell organelles. Additionally an organic acid in the Stromatolyser-4DL binds specifically to the granules in eosinophils as a result of which they can be differentiated from neutrophils by means of a higher side scatter signal.. Our XE- and XT-Series analysers provide five populations of white blood cells in the DIFF scattergram, including the Immature Granulocyte population.. The XS analysers scattergrams displays the following five populations: lymphocytes, monocytes, basophils, eosinophils and neutrophils. ...
We investigated interactions between breast cancer cells and CD45-CD34+ WAT progenitors because the latter promote tumor growth, metastasis, and angiogenesis in preclinical breast cancer models (15, 16). We found that the proteins GM-CSF and MMP9 were significantly upregulated in murine and human WAT progenitors on exposure to a variety of breast cancer cell types in vitro and in vivo. These proteins were not upregulated in other WAT cells (e.g., hematopoietic cells). Both ASCs and ECs-constituents of the CD45-CD34+ WAT fraction-produced GM-CSF and MMP9 when cocultured with breast cancer cells, consistent with previous findings that ASCs and ECs cooperate to support breast cancer growth, angiogenesis, and metastatic spread (16).. GM-CSF is a growth factor for hematopoietic and immune cells, which mobilizes stem cells and induces macrophage/granulocyte differentiation (33). Other roles include the regulation of inflammation and autoimmunity (34). MMP9 is a type IV collagenase whose increased ...

We evaluated the effects of natural purine and pyrimidine nucleosides on protection from or reversal of 3-azido-3-deoxythymidine (AZT) cytotoxicity in human bone marrow progenitor cells by using clonogenic assays. The selectivity of the "protection" or "rescue" agents was examined in evaluating the antiretroviral activity of AZT in combination with these modulating agents and of AZT alone. Following exposure of human granulocyte-macrophage progenitor cells for 2 h to 5 microM AZT (70% inhibitory concentration), increasing concentrations of potential rescue agents were added. Cells were cultured, and colony formation was assessed after 14 days. At concentrations of up to 50 microM no natural 2-deoxynucleosides, including thymidine, were able to reverse the toxic effects of AZT. Dose-dependent reversal was observed with uridine and cytidine, and essentially complete reversal was achieved with 50 microM uridine. In the protection studies, 100 microM thymidine almost completely antagonized the ...
As we could not obtain evidence for desensitisation at the level of peripheral blood monocytes, we focused on other effector cells downstream of the inflammatory cascade. Our data indicate that peripheral blood granulocytes are involved in the process of endotoxin hyporesponsiveness in cirrhotic patients. The observed loss of TNF-RI expression is compatible with a state of neutrophil exhaustion as documented in terms of impaired capacity for phagocytosis34 or production of reactive oxygen species.35 Neutrophil exhaustion may follow periods of neutrophil activation that is accompanied by increased plasma levels of neutrophil elastase.20 Furthermore, we also obtained evidence for desensitisation of a non-immune target cell population. From the observations of elevated plasma sE-selectin in systemic inflammatory response states,36 37 indicating an activation marker of endothelial cells, primarily one would not be surprised to find elevated levels in states of endotoxaemia also. In the present ...
CSF3 is a logical candidate gene for the present study due to its biological function. In a rat model, neutrophil stimulation by CSF3 aggravates ventilator-induced lung injury manifested by increased lung neutrophils and interleukin-6 expression, increased alveolar oedema on histology and reduced lung compliance 41. In patients with acute respiratory distress syndrome, CSF3 expression level in the lung correlated with severity of pulmonary neutrophilia 6. Recently, it was shown that the CSF3 2176 SNP (named exon 4-165C,T) was associated with peripheral blood granulocyte count among workers exposed to benzene 13. Subjects with homozygous TT genotypes had significantly increased blood granulocytes compared with homozygous CC subjects (p = 0.00002) 13.. The functional significance of the CSF3 SNPs is unknown. Although no association of CSF3 2176 with the primary phenotypes of baseline and decline of FEV1 was found, a different SNP, CSF3 1719, was found to be associated with the baseline level of ...

Mammalian blood neutrophilic granulocytes are terminally differentiated cells, possessing extensive heterochromatin and lobulated (or ring-shaped) nuclei. Despite the extensive amount of heterochromatin, neutrophils are capable of increased gene expression, when activated by bacterial infection. Understanding the mechanisms of transcriptional repression and activation in neutrophils requires detailing the chromatin epigenetic markers, which are virtually undescribed in this cell type. Much is known about the heterochromatin epigenetic markers in other cell-types, permitting a basis for comparison with those of mature normal neutrophilic granulocytes. Immunostaining and immunoblotting procedures were employed to study the presence of repressive histone modifications and HP1 proteins in normal human and mouse blood neutrophils, and in vitro differentiated granulocytes of the mouse promyelocytic (MPRO) system. A variety of repressive histone methylation markers were detectable in these granulocytes (di-
