Peacockii and other nonpathogenic spotted fever group rickettsiae. ; Pediatrics; University of Texas Sw Med Ctr/Dallas Dallas, Tx 753909105 Timing: Fiscal Year 2002; Project Start 01-MAY-2002; Project End 30-APR-2007 Summary: Infection represents one of the most fundamental threats to host integrity. When bacterial pathogens breach an epithelial barrier, the host innate immune system detects the attack and triggers a response to contain and eliminate the invader. Cellular sensors, such as macrophages and dendritic cells, detect pathogen through receptors that recognize bacterial macromolecules.

When bacterial pathogens breach an epithelial barrier, the host innate immune system detects the attack and triggers a response to contain and eliminate the invader. Cellular sensors, such as macrophages and dendritic cells, detect pathogen through receptors that recognize bacterial macromolecules. These cells then mount a proinflammatory reaction that leads to cellular responses that contain and eliminate the infection. Thus, the innate immune response contains both afferent (pathogen-sensing) and efferent (proinflammatory) limbs.

A novel disorder of neutrophil actin polymerization in a Tongan child and his family in Los Angeles, characterized by impaired neutrophil chemotaxis and the increased expression of an actin binding protein identified as lymphocyte specific protein 1 (LSP1) suggests a mechanism for the increase in infections. We propose to examine both functional and biochemical characteristics of neutrophils in Polynesian children with infections to test the hypothesis that defects in neutrophil function and cellular signaling pathways result in their increased susceptibility to infection.
