Listeria-induced generation of luminol-dependent chemiluminescence by pulmonary phagocytes
decreased by exposure to DEP but not CB.
Phagotest and Bursttest (Phagoburst), test kits for study of phagocyte
During activation of mammalian phagocytes
, cytosolic protein factors (p47-phox, p67-phox and p40-phox) translocate to cytochrome [b.
When data from males and females are combined, the average length of the nutritive phagocytes
(NPs) and the gonad index (GI) demonstrate an inverse relationship (Fig.
The Weill Cornell researchers studied more than 500 Crohns disease patients and found that those who carry a homozygous mutation in the CX3CR1 gene have a reduced gut antifungal response, much like that seen in the mice lacking CX3CR1+ phagocytes
Thin pleomorphic to elongate bacteria are present extracellularly (top left panel) and in cytoplasmic vacuoles within mononuclear phagocytes
(top right and bottom panels).
Brucella abortus transits through the autophagic pathway and replicates in the endoplasmic reticulum of nonprofessional phagocytes
The neutrophils, as mobile phagocytes
, degrade internalised pathogens by phagocytosis (Kumar and Sharma, 2010).
Even in the immune system, phagocytes
, once they are activated by the recognition of foreign molecules, increase their oxygen consumption in a process known as oxidative burst.
Neutrophil granulocytes and monocytes are both "professional" phagocytes
Variations of spermatogenic columns, spermatozoa, and nutritive phagocytes
layers between Field and Fed sea urchins were evaluated by using separate one-way ANCOVA analysis with the radius of the acini as a covariate.
The role of phagocytes
in HIV-related oxidative stress.
