    Estrogen exacerbates mammary involution through neutrophil-dependent and -independent mechanism

    Chew Leng Lim et al.
    Estrogen aggravates mammary involution through lysosome-mediated cell death, neutrophil recruitment via CXCR2 signalling, neutrophil-mediated inflammation and adipocyte repopulation.

    Megakaryocyte emperipolesis mediates membrane transfer from intracytoplasmic neutrophils to platelets

    Pierre Cunin et al.
    In a novel cell-in-cell interaction termed emperipolesis, neutrophils routinely transit through the cytoplasm of bone marrow megakaryocytes to pass surface membrane to newly-generated hybrid platelets.

    Circulating myeloid cells invade the central nervous system to mediate cachexia during pancreatic cancer

    Kevin G Burfeind et al.
    Circulating myeloid cells invade the brain during pancreatic cancer, where they accumulate at a unique central nervous system interface and drive anorexia and muscle catabolism.

    Blood flow guides sequential support of neutrophil arrest and diapedesis by PILR-β1 and PILR-α

    Yu-Tung Li et al.
    Blood flow-driven shear forces guide the sequential signaling of two antagonistic paired receptors, a critical bi-facet step that first supports leukocyte docking, then initiates transmigration through endothelium.

    Activated αIIbβ3 on platelets mediates flow-dependent NETosis via SLC44A2

    Adela Constantinescu-Bercu et al.
    The interaction between activated αIIbβ3 on platelets and SLC44A2 on circulating neutrophils facilitates neutrophil capture and drives flow-dependent NETosis.

    Actin-based protrusions of migrating neutrophils are intrinsically lamellar and facilitate direction changes

    Lillian K Fritz-Laylin et al.
    Neutrophil pseudopods are composed of multiple sheets that are inherently flat, protrude in three dimensions, and whose assembly correlates with cell turning.

    Neutrophil-generated HOCl leads to non-specific thiol oxidation in phagocytized bacteria

    Adriana Degrossoli et al.
    The use of genetically encoded redox sensors in phagocytized bacteria reveals that, among the toxic cocktail of oxidants released into the neutrophil's phagolysosome, HOCl is the main component responsible for the oxidative modification of bacterial protein thiols.

    Dithranol targets keratinocytes, their crosstalk with neutrophils and inhibits the IL-36 inflammatory loop in psoriasis

    Theresa Benezeder et al.
    Targeting the differentiation regulators and/or AMPs of keratinocytes, rather than targeting immune cells, may be an alternative approach for topical anti-psoriatic treatment, an area with high need for new drugs.

    Dynamics of diffusive cell signaling relays

    Paul B Dieterle et al.
    The collective dynamics of cell signaling relays are at once dramatically sensitive to the system dimensionality and insensitive to many biological details.

    Drainage of inflammatory macromolecules from the brain to periphery targets the liver for macrophage infiltration

    Linlin Yang et al.
    Circulation of molecules from the brain can serve as a rapid mode of communication from the brain to the liver.
