function followed the method of Cai et al.
index which is a measure of the rate of clearance of carbon particles was then calculated according to Bencerraf et al (1959).
Studies on the mechanisms of phagocytic
revealed that pcaroten enhances phagosome-lysosome fusion, a phenomenon associated with fluidity of the lysosomal membrane .
activity of polymorphnuclear neutrophil was carried out  for the evaluation of the cellular immunity.
Regulation of the NADPH-oxidase complex of phagocytic
leukocytes: recent insights from structural biology, molecular genetics, and microscopy.
assay: To evaluate the phagocytic
capacity of PMN, the infected PMN were washed with PBS and fixed on the cover slip with methanol, followed by the Kinyoun's staining (18).
The observation of oligodendrocyte loss prior to inflammatory demyelination or lymphocyte infiltration in nascent MS lesions suggests a novel pathogenesis, namely that macrophage activity is largely scavenger in nature and is directed toward dead, rather than normal, myelin sheaths in response to the expression of phagocytic
ligands such as phosphatidylserine on their external surface.
Although, the level of inflammation elicited by both; live and irradiation-killed mature conidia was the same (Figure1a), but the type of phagocytic
cells recruited to the airways, on day 1 post challenge, was significantly different between the groups.
The spleens had increased numbers of mononuclear phagocytic
system cells, some of which had vacuoles that contained similar organisms, as observed in the liver.
After 48h of culture, lysis of the epithelial intestinal cells, mononuclear phagocytic
eosinophils and phagocyted Aeromonas were observed.
The biofilm components summon white blood cells, with their phagocytic
enzymes, which actually can provide nutrients for the biofilm; this explains much of the biochemistry we see, according to Dr.
When a macrophage is stimulated, it modifies its adhesion property, its endocytic rates, and its fusion with endocytic vacuoles (Cunnigham and Kuhn, 1980), improving its phagocytic
rate and microbicidal activity (Anosa et al.
Neutrophils are highly specialized phagocytic
cells involved in ingestion, death, and degradation of invading microorganisms (MacCall et al.
activity of macrophages was increased by adding OA 77-84 and OA 126-134 peptides, which were derived by the peptic and chymotryptic digestions of ovalbumin, respectively.
The nonspecific immunological responses are composed of four basic types of barriers--anatomic, physiologic, phagocytic
and inflammatory defense mechanisms.
