A minimum of 100 hemocytes on each coverslip were examined and the number of hemocytes that had phagocytosed
one or more yeast was recorded so that the percentage of phagocytic cells could be calculated .
It has previously been suggested that damaged spermatozoal cells can be phagocytosed
(Sutovsky et al.
Infected erythrocytes may also be phagocytosed
by macrophages following opsonization by immunoglobulins and/or complement components.
The cells had phagocytosed
the bacteria and this step was marked by karyorrhexis.
10-12) Larger particles (more than 150 nm to 10 pm) can be phagocytosed
by a range of cells types, including osteoblasts, fibroblasts, endothelial cells, and macrophages.
62,63) These mitochondria leave the developing spermatozoa on the residual bodies and are probably phagocytosed
by the Sertoli cells.
Microscopic review of the smears nevertheless revealed phagocytosed
28) The emerging view appears to be that once macrophages have phagocytosed
lipid, the inflammatory process is similar, regardless of the initiating cause.
These particles are phagocytosed
by macrophages and accumulate in the lymphatic system.
The bacteria then migrate through cutaneous lymphatics to regional lymph nodes, where they are phagocytosed
but resist destruction.
This may affect the disease course because some microorganisms phagocytosed
by macrophages are killed by the phag ocytes' oxygen-dependent systems (Matthew 1994).
As a result of cell suicide, cellular components are dismantled and usually phagocytosed
by macrophages or neighboring cells.
