Systematic name M7792
Brief description Genes down-regulated in neutrophils: untreated versus stimulated by CSF2 and IFNG [GeneID=1437;3458].
Full description or abstract Neutrophils play critical roles in modulating the immune response. However, neutrophils have a short circulating half life, are readily stimulated in vitro, and have low levels of cellular mRNA when compared to other blood leukocyte populations. All of these factors have made it difficult to evaluate neutrophils from clinical populations for molecular and functional studies. Here we present a robust methodology for rapidly isolating neutrophils directly from whole blood and develop ?on- chip? processing for mRNA and protein isolation for genomics and proteomics. We validate this device with an ex vivo stimulation experiment and demonstrate the ability of the device to discriminate subtle differences in the genomic and proteomic response of peripheral blood neutrophils to direct and indirect stimulation. Lastly, we implement this tool as part of a near patient blood processing system within a multi-center clinical study of the immune response to severe trauma and burn injury and demonstrate that this technique is easy to use by nurses and technical staff yielding excellent quality and sufficient quantity of mRNA for sensitive genomic readout of the host response to injury
