The bone marrow is widely distributed  throughout  the skeleton and  as a single organ is larger than the liver (which weighs ± 1500g). About 55 %-60 % of the bone marrow is dedicated to the production of a single cell type, the neutrophil, with a normal ratio of neutrophils contribute  to erythrocytes  of 2:1 to 3:1. Other granulocytes  about 3 %-5 % of the bone marrow. The cellularity  varies with age and accounts  of the bone marrow  for 75 % of the marrow in the young, 50 % in young  adults and as low as 25 % in the elderly (Hartsock et al., 1965).

Proliferation  consists of approximately  5 divisions and only takes place during the first three stages of PMN development (myeloblast, promyelocyte and myelocyte stages). After the myelocyte stage the cells become “end cells” that are no longer capable of dividing (Bainton et aL, 1971). They then enter a large storage pool where they mature to segmented  PMN for ±5 days  before being released into the blood (Bainton et at., 1971; Bainton, illustrates  the PMN lifespan and stages of maturation  1980; Wintrobe, myeloblasts,  1981).

Some similarities  exist in the pattern  of release of PMN for different species; however, there are temporal differences. The emergence  time for segmented  hours in humans  PMN into the peripheral  blood ranges from 96-144  (Fliender et aL, 1964), 102±13.8 hours in dogs (Maloney and Patt,  1968) and as short as 24 hours in mice (Bryant and Kelly, 1958). These emergence times (myelocyte-to-blood could be explained  transit time) may vary considerably  by either a longer maturation  between patients  and  time from the myelocyte to the  segmented PMN or a delay in the release of mature cells from the bone marrow. The work of Cronkite et al (1960) and Maloney and Weber (1963) suggest that there is a random release of cells into the blood from the marrow segmented contrast  to first-in  first-out  kinetics.

To accomplish this the bone marrow produces ±850 x 106  cells/kg/day in humans. These cells come from the postmitotic granulocyte  pool in the  bone marrow (5.6 x iO cells/kg) which is the largest pool of PMN and is ± 10 times the size of the intravascular  pool (Finch et al., 1977).

The myelocyte-to-blood  transit time may be as short as 48 hours during infection (Fliedner et aL, 1964b). The turnover of PMN may increase from 100 billion per day at baseline to over a trillion per day during a serious infection (Walker, and Willemze, 1980; Malech, 1988).  b) Distribution  of PMN in the vascular  space  The fact that PMN can leave the circulation yet remain in the vascular space so that they can be rapidly mobilized into the circulation  in times of stress was recognized  more than a century ago by Virchow (1856), Cohnheim (1867) and Limbeck (Limbeck, 1889).

However, in the  wall the PMN make close contact with the endothelial  cells because the  9 mean diameter capillary  of the PMN (mean diameter  segments  (mean diameter  7-8 microns)  is larger  than  5-6 microns) (Schmid-Schonbein  Weibel, 1963).

They injected labelled PMN and erythrocytes  were  (RBC) in  upright awake humans, and found that ±20% of the labelled PMN failed to negotiate the pulmonary  vascular bed in the same amount of time as the erythrocytes.  The transit time for PMN is longer than RBC and longer in the upper regions of the lung (Hogg et aL, 1985; Wagner et al., 1982). If the capillary pathways  are the same  (Staub and Schultz, 1968), the longer transit time in the flow independent  lung areas  means that the velocity of blood is slower in the upper regions of the lung, supporting the concept that forces tending to propel the PMN and those retarding shifted by changing  blood velocity.

Evidence for bone marrow release of PMN: The PMN storage pool in the bone marrow is estimated  to be 5.6 x iO cells/kg with  ± 40 % of these cells being mature segmented neutrophils  and ± 60 % being band forms  and metamyelocytes  (Boggs, 1967). Under stable conditions, the PMN released from  bone marrow are mainly mature segmented PMN and these cells form the bulk of the so-called marginated the circulation  pool of cells. The marginated  with moderate stress such as exercise (Muir et al., 1984; Foster et al.,  1986) whereas more severe stress associated activation circulation.  cells can be rapidly mobilized into  is required Although  to release  with trauma,  band cells and rarely  the ratio of segmented  infection or complement metamyelocytes  to band cells released from the bone  marrow is not known and probably varies with the type and the intensity stimulus,  an increase in the circulating  into the  of the  band cell count provides definitive evidence  that PMN are being released from the bone marrow.  Our study shows an increase  83 in circulating  PMN during  either the intravascular  CPB-surgery  marginated  and the source for this increase  is from  or the bone marrow pools. As bypass of the  pulmonary circulation removes a major source of marginated  cells (Peters et aL, 1985)  the release of cells from the bone marrow is the most likely source of the increased number of circulating marginated  leukocytes  in these studies.  Furthermore,  release from the  pool is characterized  by an increase  in circulating  PMN without  a  concomitant  increase  Hetherington  and Quie, 1985). Release from the bone marrow, on the other hand, is  characterized  by an increase in the number of circulating  in the  number  blood (Boggs, 1967; Hetherington  of circulating  band  cells  (Boggs,  1967;  band cells in the peripheral  and Quie, 1985; Marsh et aL, 1967; Jagels  and  Hugli, 1992). In this study, the band cells increased from 5 % of the total PMN count at baseline  to more than 25 % of the circulating  groups (see table Ill). The fact that hypothermia cells in the circulation  and rewarming  pool at the end of surgery in both suppressed the total number of band  restored band cell counts to normothermic  levels confirms the previous report from our laboratory that the bone marrow release of PMN is a temperature  dependent  phenomenon.

This  functional dissociation between PMN activation and L-selectin shedding suggests that the enzyme responsible  for L-selectin cleavage is functionally  disabled at 27°C and  totally inactive at 4°C. It also suggests that the enzyme responsible  for the cleavage  of L-selectin during marrow release may not be one of the granular proteases released from activated  cells.  The concept that bone marrow release is related to the loss of L-selectin is supported by the previously  reported observation  that myeloid cells with low expression of L  selectin tend to be released from the bone marrow into the circulation 1990).  It is also of interest  hyperplasia  that patients  receiving  with an increased number of circulating  (Griffin et al.,  GM-CSF develop marrow  progenitor cells (Platzer, 1989)  and that GM-CSF induces shedding of L-selectin from all myeloid cells including  the  87 progenitor cells.

However,  the nature of this protein, the receptor on the myeloid cells for hemonectin  and the  factors that control this adhesion event are not known. In this study we have linked the release of PMN from the bone marrow to the shedding  of L-selectin from their  surface. This adds to the body of evidence that the adhesion promoting molecules play a critical role in the egress of leukocytes shedding  from the bone marrow. We speculate  of L-selectin from the surface of PMN may be an important  that  step in their  release from the bone marrow.  Evidence of increase in expression of L-selectin on circulating PMN during active bone marrow release L-selectin is expressed by nearly all circulating  PMN and post-mitotic  myeloid cells  in the bone marrow (Collins et al., 1991; Griffin et al., 1990; Spertim et al., 199 ib). Lewinsohn  et a! (1987) demonstrated  in mice that  mature  expressed higher levels of L-selectin (MEL- 14) than peripheral a reduced  expression  of L-selectin  (Lewinsohn et al., 1987).

We  know of no other study directly comparing the expression of L-selectin on PMN in the peripheral  blood and bone marrow compartments  of humans  during  active bone  marrow release of PMN.  Evaluating  bone marrow smears showed at baseline the expression of L-selectin was  higher on bone marrow PMN than on cirrculating and hypothermic  PMN in both the normothermic  groups and that it did not change to a significant  study period (Table IV). There was less L-selectin on circulating  extent over the  PMN (more negative  or Gi cells and fewer highly positive or G4 cells) than on the bone marrow PMN in both groups of patients  under baseline conditions  (Table IV). Furthermore,  as the  PMN on bone marrow smears are diluted by blood from the bone marrow venous sinusoids,  our estimate  of the L-selectin expression  compartments  is probably  hematopoietic  compartment  on PMN in the hematopoietic  low, and the PMN L-selectin and the circulating  gradient  between  the  blood is probably even larger than  observed. The difference in L-selectin expression  between bone marrow PMN and  PMN in the circulation under baseline conditions suggests that L-selectin may be lost as PMN cross the bone marrow-blood barrier or that circulating lose L-selectin during their intravascular mixture of cells from the hematopoietic  PMN progressively  life. As bone marrow smears contain a  tissue and bone marrow venous sinusoids, the  reduction in PMN L-selectin crossing the bone marrow-blood barrier is unlikely to be the sole reason for the difference in L-selectin expression we observed between bone marrow smears and cytospins. Loss of L-selectin from the PMN during their lifespan in the general circulation  is a likely explanation  and this hypothesis will be explored  90 in the second part of this thesis.

Interestingly,  the expression of L-selectin on band cells in the bone marrow was lower  than on segmented  PMN, which suggests  that the mature  bone marrow contain the most L-selectin.

They mediate leukocyte rolling and margination  (P-selectin) and leukocytes  of PMN in post capillary  or collecting venules (Ley et al., 1993; Ley et aL, 1991b; Von Andnan et aL, 1992; Von Andrian selectin  et aL, 1991), the earliest  manifestation  has been shown to be essential  of leukocyte  recruitment.  in the leukocyte-endothelial  interaction  cascade of events in vitro and in vivo that result in PMN recruitment inflammation  L  to foci of  (Butcher, 1991; Ley et aL, 1991b; Mulligan et aL, 1994; Von Andrian  et al., 1991; Springer,  1 990b).

Our study suggests that the myelocyte blood transit time in rabbits is between 24-48 hours. In this study using a whole blood transfusion labelled PMN in the circulation  method the calculated half-life of the BrdU  was 270 minutes  or 4.5 hours (95 % CI 248-296  minutes). This half-life is shorter than the 6.5 hours calculated  in a previous study  when PMN in rabbits were labelled with 51 Cr (Doerschuk et at., 1987a) although in that study purified PMN were used and the half-life was calculated experiment.  from a single  It is also shorter (between 6 and 10 hours) if compared to studies where  isotopes such as DP P, 1 32 ‘ I n, 3 Cr were used in humans [ H ITdR and 51  (Athens et at.,  1961; Filender et at., 1964; Segal et al., 1976).  Transfusion of whole blood was the most convenient and effective way of transferring these labelled PMN to recipient  animals.  Using the same volume of blood, PMN  purification resulted in a calculated loss of approximately  50 % of the PMN due to the  purification procedure.

It has been suggested  that effete PMN leave the circulation  according to their age, do not re-enter the circulation  randomly  rather than  (Fliedner et al., 1964a) and  meet their fate in situ (Hurley, 1983). The normal site for PMN emigration  from the  125  circulation  and death is unclear (Bainton,  1988) but our data show that over half of  the BrdU labelled PMN infused as whole blood or LRP were found in the spleen 24 hours after infusion.  This figure contrasts  with the 13±10% of BrdU labelled PMN  recovered in the spleens of the recipients who received purified PMN. This low value for removal of purified PMN by the spleen is similar to data obtained from a study that used 51 Cr labelled PMN in rabbits (Doersehuk et aL, 1987a). We attribute difference to PMN activation  this  during the isolation procedure, which results in rapid  removal of labelled cells by several organs, especially the liver.

Cell preparation: BrdU labelling of donor PMN:  The DNA of rabbit leukocytes  was labelled with BrdU, a thymidine  analogue,  as  previously described (Bicknell et aL, 1994). Briefly, 5 donor rabbits were given BrdU (Sigma Chemical Co., St. Louis, MO) at a dose of 25 mg/kg daily for 7 days. was collected from the central ear artery for blood cell counts, differential  Blood  white cell  counts and to prepare LRP which was cytospun onto 3-aminopropyl-tri-ethoxysilane coated slides.  The cytospin specimens were air dried and stained using the APAAP  method (Cordell et al., 1984) to determine the fraction of BrdU labelled PMN in each specimen (Bicknell et al., 1994). PMN punfication:  The PMN were purified from donor rabbit blood as has been previously  described  (Doerschuk et al., 198Th). Briefly, LRP obtained from each 75 ml of donor blood was centrifuged and resuspended  in 1 ml PMN buffer. Hypotomc lysis of the residual red  blood cells in the LRP was achieved by dilution with 11 ml sterile water. seconds, 11 ml 2X PBS (2X PBS is 27 mM , 4 H 2 Na PO NaC1) and  10 ml PMN buffer  were added.

Evaluating  BrdU labelled PMN  The slides were coded and evaluated without knowledge of their origin. BrdU labelled PMN were evaluated  on computer generated  randomly selecting fields counting  100  PMN per slide. BrdU labelled PMN were identified by a deep blue staining of the cell nucleus  (figure 23). Cells were categorized  as either BrdU positive (blue nucleus),  BrdU and L-selectin positive (double labelled), L-selectin positive (red cell surface), or negative  for both labels. If less than 10 % of the PMN were BrdU labelled, 200  PMN were counted, if less than 5 %, 500 PMN were counted, and if less than 1 %, 1000 PMN were counted. The total number BrdU labelled PMN evaluated  in each  slide averaged 102± 19 with a range of 50 to 156. The number of BrdU labelled PMN present in the circulation  of the recipients  at each time point was expressed as a  fraction of the total number of labelled PMN infused corrected for the calculated blood volume (American Physiology Societ, 1965) in the following manner:  136  Fraction PMNBrdU Circ  =  PMNCWC  X  BV x %PMNe:em BrdU  PMNed  where the fraction PMN circulation  represents  the number of BrdU labelled PMN in the  as a fraction of the total number of BrdU labelled PMN infused, PMN CfrC  the calculated  number of PMN (1 x 106) in the circulation  (total white cell count times  the fraction of leukocytes that are PMN), BV the calculated blood volume, %PMNT the fraction of BrdU labelled PMN in a cytospin of peripheral and PMN  blood in the recipient,  the number(1 x 106) of BrdU labelled PMN infused (PMN count/mi x  ml of fluid infused x %BrdU labelled PMN).
