Specific arrest of neutrophils in venules is central to their rapid accumulation during local inflammatory responses. Initial neutrophil rolling on endothelium is mediated by leukocyte L-selectin and the inducible vascular adhesion proteins P- and E-selectin. This rolling is a prerequisite for endothelial-dependent neutrophil arrest. Here we describe rolling of neutrophils on the surface of previously arrested neutrophils and demonstrate that this interaction involves L-selectin exclusively on rolling cells. The adherent neutrophil support of L-selectin-dependent neutrophil rolling in vivo can promote continuous and augmented leukocyte recruitment at sites of previous neutrophil accumulation.
Neutrophils roll on adherent neutrophils bound to cytokine-induced endothelial cells via L-selectin on the rolling cells.
