Emergency granulopoiesis is very important strategy to supply efficient neutrophil number in response to infection. However, molecular mechanism involved in the process remains unclear. Here, we found that administration of WKYMVm, an immune modulating peptide, to septic mice strongly increased neutrophil number through augmented emergency granulopoiesis. WKYMVm-induced emergency granulopoiesis was blocked not only by a formyl peptide receptor 2 (FPR2) antagonist (WRW4) but also by FPR2 deficiency. Progenitors of neutrophils, Lin-c-kit+Sca-1- cells express FPR2, and WKYMVm-induced emergency granulopoieis was also blocked by a PLC inhibitor (U-73122). Given these results, we suggest that WKYMVm stimulates emergency granulopoiesis via FPR2 and PLC enzymatic activity.
