Basophils

 

(biology), cells whose protoplasm contains granules that are stained with basic dyes. The term “basophil” is used to designate one of the types of white blood cells (in a healthy person basophils constitute 0.5–1 percent of all the white blood cells) or one of the types of cells in the anterior lobe of the pituitary.
