Klaus Ley and his colleagues from the University of Virginia show that platelet-neutrophil interactions have an important role in the development of disease in a mouse model of acid aspiration – induced ALI. Reduce the number of platelets in mice, or inhibition of platelet-neutrophil interaction reduces the recruitment of neutrophils into the lungs, with reduced lung function permeability, improved gas exchange in the lungs, and prolongs the survival time. Mechanistically, the expression of a molecule as the P-selectin was generating from the platelets known critical for mediating platelet-neutrophil interaction that platelets induced proinflammatory factors such as TXA2. The authors therefore suggest interrupting the platelet – neutrophil interaction and blocking the inflammatory factors produced as a result of this interaction may provide novel therapeutic targets for the treatment of individuals with ALI..

However, if the protein?-Actinin binds to vinculin head named, in the body,res the head has a different shape. In this form, plays a critical role vinculin in stabilizing a chain of molecules called cadherin. This extends through the cell membrane and binds with cadherin chains of neighboring cells – generika versand . The compound, like a chained fence allows cells to combine to sheets , forming tissues and organs. Other authors of the study are Robert A. Borgon and Christina L.
