Short-Term High-NaCl Dietary Intake Changes Leukocyte Expression of VLA-4, LFA-1, and Mac-1 Integrins in Both Healthy Humans and Sprague-Dawley Rats: A Comparative Study

Figure 3

CD11b(act)/Mac-1 and CD11a/LFA-1 integrin expression on peripheral blood leukocyte subpopulations correlates to daily sodium intake in young healthy subjects during short-term dietary salt load. Average integrin expressions on peripheral blood leukocyte subsets and their correlation to daily sodium intake for CD11b/Mac-1 (a), CD11a/LFA-1 (b), CD49d/VLA-4 (c), and CD66b (c) are shown. Integrin expressions were calculated as mean fluorescence intensity of the gated cell population. Data are presented as and were analyzed by paired -test and Pearson’s correlation; was considered significant.
