We used 3-color analyses to identify granulocytes as sidescatter high, CD66b
high; monocytes as side-scatter intermediate, CD33 high; and T lymphocytes as sidescatter low, CD2 high.
Selectin "shedding" occurs because infected cells degranulate, including an EDTA-inhibitable sheddase (metalloprotease), [beta]2-integrins, CD66b
, and other inflammatory components such as matrix metalloproteases, which includes gelatinase (MMP9) (38,39).
