Evidence of macrophage receptors capable of direct recognition of xenogeneic epitopes without opsonization.
BACKGROUND: We have previously demonstrated that porcine livers perfused with human blood remove most of the erythrocytes from three units of human blood over the course of a 72-h extracorporeal perfusion. Red blood cell loss did not appear to involve classical complement pathway-mediated hemolysis, but instead resulted from porcine Kupffer cell phagocytosis. METHODS: We developed a method incorporating collagenase digestion and metrizamide separation to isolate and maintain porcine Kupffer ...Expand abstract
