Using a chelating agent which binds calcium ions 100,000-fold more avidly than magnesium ions (EGTA) it was demonstrated that PMN adhesion to glass or to other leukocytes was not a calcium-dependent process and that a slight excess of magnesium ion actually caused increased PMN adhesiveness in the virtual absence of calcium.
