Phagocytosis requires repeated triggering of macrophage phagocytic receptors during particle ingestion

Abstract

The phagocytic functions of polymorphonuclear leukocytes and mononuclear phagocytes are crucial elements in host defence against a variety of invading microorganisms. Phagocytosis is a highly selective process, requiring specific interactions between the surface of the particle to be ingested and the plasma membrane of the phagocytic cell. The phagocyte can… (More)
