Modulation of macrophage mannosyl-specific receptors by cultivation on immobilized zymosan. Effects on superoxide-anion release and phagocytosis.

Abstract

Unopsonized zymosan effectively induces a respiratory burst (O-2 release, hexose monophosphate (HMP) shunt stimulation) in thioglycollate-elicited and BCG-activated macrophages (M phi). These M phi are known to express lectin-like receptors specific for mannose or fucose-terminated glycoconjugates (MFR). A role for the MFR in phagocytosis of zymosan was… (More)
