j123  Note: C5a is a chemotactic factor for many immune cells in addition to neutrophils. Also, C3a is a chemotactic factor for just eosinophils and basophils (not neutrophils) +2  
cheesetouch  Q. What's so sexy about C5a? A. It's like Chanel No. 5 for neutrophils: they smell it and come running. +7  
igurl11  I guess I kind of overthought this and went back and forth between C5a (initial choice right off the bat) and Histamine (until I saw this... aaaand went into internal battle mode). Since it asked what cause the Neutrophil to be at that location, I thought margination and rolling would be the 1st reason that neutrophils move from center to the periphery via Histamine (VD -> center to margin) and then it would start to slow down via P- (WP bodies bc of Histamine) and E- (IL-1 and TNF)) selectin speed bumps. I did wonder if they wanted us to go with the adhesion portion which would be the C5a, LTB4 etc but was there anything that specifically pointed towards Adhesion vs Margination/rolling? I need to stop overthinking things xD +
