Dear immunologists,

happy new year.

Can anyone help me with a question about fMLP and LPS?
I understand that both agents are used as unspecific general purpose cell
activators that induce cells to make a lot of things and that often mimic
the actions of cytokines.

Are there any reasons for using one in preference of the other? Or is fMLP
only a chemotactic activator?

thanks a lot
