Phagocytic activity and oxygen metabolism of peripheral blood granulocytes from rabbits experimentally infected with Trichophyton mentagrophytes

phagocytic activity and oxygen metabolism of granulocytes from rabbits experimentally infected with T . mentagrophytes . The study also intended to define whether a decrease or increase in the indices is related to the progress of infection and suppressive activity of the fungus. Material and Methods Experimental animals The study was performed on 16 New Zealand rabbits aged 10 weeks which came from a breeding farm free from ringworm. Animals were divided into an experimental group (group I) and a control group (group II). During the experiment the rabbits from

Phagocytosis in Mesocestoides vogae-induced peritoneal monocytes/macrophages via opsonin-dependent or independent pathways

al ., 2007 ). Macrophages are strategically located throughout the body and express a multitude of receptors on their surfaces that detect “non-self” signals which are later eliminated via phagocytosis. Phagocytosis is the process that cells have evolved to internalize large particles such as mineral debris, which they store, or apoptotic cells and pathogens, which they have the capacity to kill and degrade upon activation ( Janeway & Travers, 1994 ). The recognition of phagocytic targets is mediated by specific receptors on phagocytes that either recognize serum
