Glutaraldehyde-perfused lungs of 5 adult male and female goats were prepared for electron microscopy to study the properties of blood monocytes in the alveolar capillaries, with particular reference to intravascular erythrophagocytosis. Ultrastructural evidence is presented that the majority of intravascular monocytes were active in forming large uropods and filipods and were vigorously phagocytic for erythrocytes. Erythrocytes were engulfed intact and subsequently fragmented. The fragments… CONTINUE READING
