Our group has proposed that low-density granulocytes (LDGs) play an important role in lupus pathogenesis, as they can damage endothelial cells and synthesize increased levels of proinflammatory cytokines and type I interferons. LDGs have a heightened capacity to synthesize neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs). NETs from LDGs display increased levels of bactericidal and immunostimulatory proteins, such as the cathelicidin LL37 and externalize double-stranded DNA (dsDNA). Lupus netting LDGs have increased capacity to kill endothelial cells and expose IL-17. Through NETosis, lupus neutrophils stimulate plasmacytoid DCs to synthesize IFN-. Our results further expand the potential pathogenic role of aberrant lupus neutrophils through a NET-mediated effect.
