MTOC reorientation occurs during FcgammaR-mediated phagocytosis in macrophages.

Abstract

Cell polarization is essential for targeting signaling elements and organelles to active plasma membrane regions. In a few specialized cell types, cell polarity is enhanced by reorientation of the MTOC and associated organelles toward dynamic membrane sites. Phagocytosis is a highly polarized process whereby particles >0.5 microm are internalized at… (More)
