granulocyte

A white blood cell (LEUKOCYTE) containing granules. Granulocytes include NEUTROPHILS, BASOPHILS, EOSINOPHILS and their precursors. MAST CELLS are also granulocytes. These cells are components of the immune system.

granulocyte

a type of white blood cell (LEUCOCYTE) that possesses granules in the cytoplasm and is formed in the bone marrow. Granulocytes form about 70% of all leucocytes and are of three types: EOSINOPHILS, BASOPHILS and NEUTROPHILS.

Granulocyte

Any of several types of white blood cells that have granules in their cell substance. Neutrophils are the most common type of granulocyte.

(Table 2) Shows the mean [+ or -] SEM of granulocyte count in menstrual, proliferative and secretory phases of menstrual cycle in different aged groups of 17-19 years, 23-25 years, it shows increased in granulocyte count in all the three phases i.e.-menstrual, proliferative and secretory phases of the menstrual cycle and was found statistically significant (P<0.05) but in the aged groups of 20-22 years, the granulocyte count was increased in all the three phases i.e.-menstrual, proliferative and secretory phase of menstrual cycle but was not statistically significant.
