Polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMNLs) were allowed to migrate on slides with fixed yeast particles dotted about on the surface. Locomotion was quantified by counting the number of yeast particles in association with a PMNL. Yeast particles that differed in their ability to consume hemolytic complement differed also in their ability to generate chemoattractants. Addition of a complement source to yeast particles able to activate the complement system resulted in a chemotactic response, as well as… CONTINUE READING
