segmented neutrophil

seg·ment·ed neu·tro·phil

a fully matured neutrophil that has at least two (and as many as five) distinct lobes in the nucleus and manifests active ameboid motion.
Synonym(s): mature neutrophil

segmented neutrophil

a neutrophil with a segmented nucleus. Segments are connected by thin nuclear membrane filaments.

seg·ment·ed neu·tro·phil

(seg-ment'ĕd nū'trō-fil)
A mature and fully functional polymorphonuclear leukocyte (PMN) containing cytoplasmic granules (primary or azurophil and secondary or specific) and a lobulated chromatin-dense nucleus with no nucleolus.
