  • Neutrophils were examined for their ability to recognize and ingest beads coated with amino-derivatives of glucose, mannose, and galactose. Radioactive or fluorescent beads coated with any of the three sugars were ingested to an extent three times that observed with albumin-coated beads. Enhancement of ingestion of sugar-coated beads was much more evident when examined by electron micrographic studies. Inclusion of glucose or mannose in the medium with glucose- or mannose-coated beads caused a… CONTINUE READING
