Venous peripheral blood samples were collected continuously every 3 hours for 72 hours (24 samples in total) from a 52 yr old caucasian male. Neutrophils were isolated from whole blood by immunomagnetic negative selection with EasySep Direct Human Neutrophil Isolation Kit (STEMCELL) according to the manufacturer's protocol. The negative selection for neutrophils was repeated three times and the cells resuspended in phosphate buffered saline. The neutrophils were stored in -80 °C before DNA extractions. The microarray experiment was performed in technical duplicates.
