Phagocytosis by human monocytes of particles activating the alternative pathway of complement.

Abstract

The phagocytosis of particles activating the alternative pathway of complement by human monocytes cultured under serum-free conditions was studied. In contrast to native zymosan particles, which were easily ingested, rabbit erythrocytes and agarose beads had to be coated with C3b or C3bi to be engulfed by the monocytes. The binding and ingestion by… (More)
