Our goal is to determine the macrophage response to wear debris in cells from normal volunteers and patients with and without periprosthetic osteolysis and the association of the magnitude of the response or the incidence of the disease with particular TLR45, CD14, and TLR2 polymorphisms.
When a macrophage is stimulated, it modifies its adhesion property, its endocytic rates, and its fusion with endocytic vacuoles (Cunnigham and Kuhn, 1980), improving its phagocytic rate and microbicidal activity (Anosa et al.
But by applying the high-volume sorting and analytical power of proteomics--a detailed survey of microbial proteins present in the 24 hours that follow macrophage infection of a mouse--a team led by Liang Shi, staff scientist at the Department of Energy's Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL), has turned up a suspect protein.
To characterize the immune response in inoculation eschars during ATBF and Mediterranean spotted fever, paraffin sections were stained with the polymorphonuclear leukocyte marker CD 15 (Immunotech, Marseille, France), the macrophage marker CD68 (Dako, Trappes, France), the T-lymphocyte marker CD3 (Dako), the B-lymphocyte marker CD20 (L26, Dako), and the endothelial cell marker Factor VIII-related antigen (Dako) by using the peroxidase-based method described above.
