Abstract:Neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs) are extracellular DNA webs released from neutrophils to mediate host anti-microbial defense. As NETs could also induce thrombosis and cause organ injury, their release should be strictly controlled. However, it is not well understood about the intrinsic mechanisms that prevent unfavorable NETs. Herein, an accidental finding of NETs release from human peripheral neutrophils was firstly described in serum free culture, and it was also determined as a conserved effect for ser… Show more
