Phagocytes are the most important early components of the immune response, programmed to recognize, engulf, and destroy immune complexes (formed when antibodies recognize their specific antigens), foreign particles, bacteria, mycobacteria, apoptotic cells, etc. Neutrophils, monocytes, macrophages, and dendritic cells all participate in this process. Flow cytometry permits observation of phagocytes that have responded and, with the appropriate fluorescent probes, of the environment in the… CONTINUE READING
