Glycolytic, hexose monophosphate shunt and bactericidal activities of leukocytes in ascorbic acid deficient guinea pigs.

Abstract

It is well known that glycolytic and hexose monophosphate shunt activities of leukocytes increase during phagocytosis. The relevance of these metabolic changes to particle uptake and particle destruction is also well established. In the present study, these metabolic activities were studied to assess the phagocytic function of leukocytes isolated from… (More)
