Tertiary (gelatinase) granules are part of a continuum of peroxidase-negative granules formed in myelocytes, metamyelocytes, band cells and segmented neutrophils. They differ from secondary granules by having a low content of antimicrobial substances, and are more readily exocytosed (Sengelov et al. 1995). Tertiary granules are primarily a reservoir of extracellular matrix degrading enzymes and membrane receptors that are needed for neutrophil extravasation and diapedesis (Faurschou & Borregaard 2003).
