Nonopsonic phagocytosis of Pseudomonas aeruginoas: insights from an infant with leukocyte adhesion deficiency.
Children with leukocyte adhesion deficiency type I are at risk for overwhelming infection because their neutrophils lack surface beta 2 integrins (CD18/CD11) that normally interact with endothelial cell adhesion molecules and mediate migration to sites of bacterial invasion. In vitro studies of phagocytic cells from an infant with leukocyte adhesion deficiency type I demonstrated that complement receptor 3 (CD18/CD11b) mediates nonopsonic phagocytosis of some Pseudomonas aeruginosa strains an...Expand abstract
