Phagolysosomal pH of human neutrophils.


Human neutrophils sequester yeast cells or zymosan particles in two classes of phagocytic vacuoles: sealed and unsealed. The pH of sealed vacuoles was measured by a newly devised fluorometric procedure that used fluoresceinated zymosan particles, derived from Saccharomyces cerevisiae, as a pH probe. Five minutes after initiation of phagocytosis, sealed… (More)
