ROS production is an important effector mechanism mediating intracellular killing of microbes by phagocytes. Inappropriate or untimely ROS production can lead to tissue damage, thus tight regulation is essential. We recently characterized signal inhibitory receptor on leukocytes-1 (SIRL-1) as an inhibitory receptor expressed by human phagocytes. Here, we demonstrate that ligation of SIRL-1 dampens Fc receptor-induced ROS production in primary human phagocytes. In accordance, SIRL-1 engagement...Expand abstract
