of spermatozoa and of residual bodies discarded by maturing spermatids has been described in detail for NPs in Anthocidaris crassispina (Reunov et al., 2004a, b).
Fluorescence Microscopy for Quantification of Phagocytosis
. RAW264.7 cells were plated onto 12 or 24 well plates and pretreated for 8 hrs with fisetin (20 [micro]M), CSE (5%), chloroquine (10 [micro]M), and CFTR(inh)-172 (inhibitor; 10 [micro]M) or transfected for 24 hrs with TFEB-Mission[TM] shRNA.
To clarify whether the CD47-SIRP[alpha] signal contributes to the immune evasion mediated by TAMs, we perform a phagocytosis
assay in vitro and establish the xenograft EC model to test the antitumor activity of CD47 blockade therapy.
Here, we provide the first comprehensive analysis of MMP-13 involvement in the biology of DC and the functional changes resulting from the inhibition of MMP-13, including DC maturation, apoptosis, and phagocytosis
This can be an advantageous mechanism for neoplastic cells over their normal counterparts, which allows the former to evade phagocytosis
by cells of the innate immune system.
Dex treatment enhanced phagocytic activity of DCs following aspergillus conidia infection, compared to the control group (phagocytosis
rates: 91.0% [+ or -] 3.4% in Dex group; 67.1% [+ or -] 10.1% in the control group, t = 5.493, P = 0.001); whereas IFN-a did not enhance phagocytic activity of DCs following aspergillus conidia infection (phagocytosis
rate in IFN-a group: 66.7% [+ or -] 5.9%, t = 0.084, P = 0.935).
"Among the genes we saw altered were many involved in phagocytosis
, which is the first time this has been shown," Feinstein said.
Influence of PLGA-PEG Percentage to Phagocytosis
The neutrophil-tumor cell emperipolesis, entosis, and/or phagocytosis
(cannibalism) may be a spectrum of the cell-in-cell phenomenon.
When macrophages encounter maresins, they increase phagocytosis
and efferocytosis, resulting in the removal of microbes.
Similar to AMs, several density-defined populations have been identified exhibiting differential prostaglandin secretion, migration, and phagocytosis
There was reduction in phagocytosis
percentage of macrophages with increase in dose.
