The CD11b/CD18 integrin plays a crucial role in cell-cell adhesion processes. Recently, we described a case of severe neonatal alloimmune neutropenia (NAIN) caused by an alloantibody against a variant of the CD11b subunit (Mart alloantigen). Allele-specific transfected cells allowed us to demonstrate that an H61R point mutation is directly responsible for the formation of Mart epitopes. No difference in the adhesion capability between H61 and R61 homozygous neutrophils was observed. Functional analysis showed that anti-Mart inhibited Mac-1–dependent adhesion of neutrophils and monocytic U937 cells to fibrinogen, intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1), receptor for advanced glycation end product (RAGE), and glycoprotein Ibα but not to junctional adhesion molecule-C or urokinase plasminogen activator receptor (uPAR). Accordingly, anti-Mart blocked neutrophil and U937 cell adhesion to endothelial cells and platelet-leukocyte aggregate formation in whole blood under high shear. Other sera of anti-Mart from mothers of infants without NAIN did not show inhibitory properties. We conclude that anti-Mart antibodies with different functional properties exist. This is supported by our findings that anti-Mart antibodies have different abilities to inhibit cell-cell adhesion, to enhance the respiratory burst of neutrophils, and to recognize different epitopes at the N-terminal region of CD11b. In conclusion, some anti-Mart alloantibodies interfere with Mac-1–dependent cellular functions of neutrophils, cause NAIN, and may be used as tools for studying Mac-1–dependent functions.

The pattern recognition receptor, RAGE (receptor for advanced glycation endproducts), propagates cellular dysfunction in several inflammatory disorders and diabetes. Here we show that RAGE functions as an endothelial adhesion receptor promoting leukocyte recruitment. In an animal model of thioglycollate-induced acute peritonitis, leukocyte recruitment was significantly impaired in RAGE-deficient mice as opposed to wild-type mice. In diabetic wild-type mice we observed enhanced leukocyte recruitm...

The firm adhesion and transplatelet migration of leukocytes on vascular thrombus are dependent on the interaction of the leukocyte integrin Mac-1 (αMβ2, CD11b/CD18) and the platelet counter receptor glycoprotein (GP) Ibα. Previous studies have established a central role for the I domain, a stretch of ∼200 amino acids within the αM subunit, in the binding of GP Ibα. This study was undertaken to establish the molecular basis of GP Ibα recognition by αMβ2. The P201–K217 sequence, which spans an exp...

Abstract Phagocytosis of complement-opsonized targets is a primary function of neutrophils at sites of inflammation, and the clearance of neutrophils that have phagocytosed microbes is important for the resolution of inflammation. Our previous work suggests that phagocytosis leads to rapid neutrophil apoptosis that is inhibited by antibody to the β2 integrin, Mac-1, and requires NADPH oxidase-derived reactive oxygen species (ROS) generated during phagocytosis. Here we report that phagocytosis-in...

Human neutrophil antigen-4a (HNA-4a) is a high-frequency (99% in the USA) neutrophil antigen, which has recently been linked to a case of alloimmune neonatal neutropenia. We have devised a new polymerase chain reaction sequence-specific primer (PCR-SSP) method to assess HNA-4a genotype, and used it to determine the HNA-4a gene frequencies in an Australian population. The gene frequency was found to be 0·906, which is the same as in the American population. The PCR-SSP genotyping method perfectly...

Abstract Both the innate and adaptive immune responses are dependent on the migration of leukocytes across endothelial cells. The process of diapedesis, in which the leukocyte crawls between tightly apposed endothelial cells, is a unique and complex process. Several molecules concentrated at the junctions of endothelial cells, originally described as having a role in holding the endothelial monolayer together, have also been shown to have a role in the emigration of leukocytes. Several mechanism...

Interactions of leukocytes with endothelial cells are early events in acute and chronic inflammation, immune surveillance of tissues, and wound defense and repair. In contrast with their requisite roles in host defense, dysregulated leukocyte–endothelial interactions mediate inflammatory tissue inju

SUMMARY Decreased number and impaired functions of polymorphonuclear neutrophils (PMN) due to the presence of anti-PMN autoantibodies in the serum render patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) susceptible to bacterial infections. However, the cognate antigens and pathological mechanisms of anti-PMN autoantibodies in SLE are rarely reported in the literature. In this study, we found approximately 20% of SLE sera contained anti-PMN autoantibodies detected by human PMN-coated cellular ELI...

This is a novel case report of alloimmune neonatal neutropenia (ANN) linked to the neutrophil antibody anti-HNA-4a (MART). Since its discovery, the HNA-4a antigen has never been associated with any clinical neutropenia. A first-born neonate with respiratory distress was found to be severely neutropenic, because of ANN. The broad reactivity of the antibody together with its capture by CD11b and CD18 in monoclonal antibody immobilization of granulocyte antigen test suggested HNA-4a specificity. DN...

The molecular details of leukocyte transmigration through the endothelial barrier (also called diapedesis), which is the final step of leukocyte extravasation from the circulation to a given site of inflammation, are by far not well understood. The present review will focus on the different mechanisms potentially involved in leukocyte trans-endothelial migration. Both homophilic and heterophilic interactions between leukocyte and endothelial cell receptors will be covered, with a particular focu...

In their roles as major adhesion receptors, integrins signal across the plasma membrane in both directions. Recent structural and cell biological data suggest models for how integrins transmit signals between their extracellular ligand binding adhesion sites and their cytoplasmic domains, which link to the cytoskeleton and to signal transduction pathways. Long-range conformational changes couple these functions via allosteric equilibria.

Preeclampsia/hypertensive disorders of pregnancy (PE/HDP) is a serious and potentially life-threatening disease. Recently, PE/HDP has been considered to cause adipose tissue inflammation, but the detailed mechanism remains unknown. We exposed human primary cultured adipocytes with serum from PE/HDP and healthy controls for 24 h, and analyzed mRNA expression of several adipokines, cytokines, and ligands of the receptor for advanced glycation endproducts (RAGE). We found that the mRNA levels of in...

BACKGROUND Maternal alloantibodies directed against human neutrophil antigens (HNAs) can cause moderate-severe neutropenia in the newborn in a condition known as neonatal alloimmune neutropenia (NAIN). Neonates with NAIN can present with sepsis or be asymptomatic. NAIN has previously been reported as caused by antibodies against HNA-1a, -1b, and -1c; CD16b, -2, -3a, -4a, and -5a; and HLA, but not by antibodies against HNA-4b. We report a case of NAIN due to anti- HNA-4b alloimmunization in a ter...

Summary Mac-1 (CD11b/CD18) is a β2 integrin classically regarded as a pro-inflammatory molecule because of its ability to promote phagocyte cytotoxic functions and enhance the function of several effector molecules such as FcγR, uPAR, and CD14. Nevertheless, recent reports have revealed that Mac-1 also plays significant immunoregulatory roles, and genetic variants in ITGAM, the gene that encodes CD11b, confer risk for the autoimmune disease systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). This has renewed in...

BACKGROUND Human neutrophil antigen (HNA)−4a/4bw is encoded by 230G>A in ITGAM, which results in an Arg61His substitution of the αM chain (CD11b) of complement receptor 3 (CR3; CD11b/18 or Mac-1). HNA-4a antibodies have been detected in the sera of female blood donors and in maternal sera that caused alloimmune neonatal neutropenia (ANN), in which maternal immunoglobulin (Ig)G antibodies against a paternally inherited HNA cross the placenta and destroy fetal and neonatal neutrophils. However, to...

Background: In the Korean population, gene frequencies of Human Neutrophil Alloantigen-1 (HNA-1), HNA-2, HNA-4, and HNA-5 were determined using serological and genotyping methods. However, no study assessing the gene frequencies of HNA-3 among the Korean population has been conducted. The aims of this study were to report the gene frequencies of HNA-3, to estimate the risk of HNA-3a (or HNA-3b) alloimmunization, and to secure donors of granulocytes for anti-HNA-3 antibodies among the Korean popu...

In 1998, the ISBT Granulocyte Antigen Working Party established a new nomenclature for the human neutrophil antigens (HNA) which included five antigen systems and a total of seven antigens. In the meantime, new antigens and new alleles have been described and these now make it necessary for the ISBT HNA nomenclature subcommittee to present a proposal for an HNA nomenclature update. HNA-1 includes four antigens, HNA-1a, HNA-1b, HNA-1c and HNA-1d, which can result from five different Fcγ receptor ...
