2021 bioRxiv   pre-print
Neutrophils are critical to host defence, executing diverse strategies to perform their antimicrobial and regulatory functions. One tactic is the production of neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs).  ...  By microscopy, this antibody distinguishes NETs from chromatin in purified and mixed cell samples. It also detects NETs in tissue sections.  ...  Acknowledgements The authors would like to give special thanks to Borko Amulic and Gerben Marsman for their constructive feedback at the early stages of manuscript preparation.  ...

Computational detection and quantification of human and mouse neutrophil extracellular traps in flow cytometry and confocal microscopy

Brandon G. Ginley, Tiffany Emmons, Brendon Lutnick, Constantin F. Urban, Brahm H. Segal, Pinaki Sarder
2017 Scientific Reports  
Neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs) are extracellular defense mechanisms used by neutrophils, where chromatin is expelled together with histones and granular/cytoplasmic proteins.  ...  However, the precise assessment of in vivo relevance in different disease settings has been hampered by limited tools to quantify occurrence of extracellular traps in experimental models and human samples  ...  We thank NVIDIA Corporation for the donation of the Titan X Pascal GPU used for this research (NVIDIA, Santa Clara, CA).  ...

2019 bioRxiv   pre-print
In addition to various effector mechanisms, PMNs also produce extracellular vesicles (EVs). Their contribution to antifungal defense has remained unexplored.  ...  Tracking of produced afEVs indicated that they associated with fungal cells and even entered fungal hyphae, resulting in alterations in the morphology of the fungal cell wall, and imparted antifungal effects  ...  The authors declare no conflict of interest.  ...
