microphage function - (Aug/15/2001 )

dose anyone know how to check microphage function? Thank youQingchuan Zhao


umm, I believe you mean may do respiratory burst, phagocytosis of congo-red labeled or fluorescent labeled yeast cells, nitric oxide production ( colorimetric ) or even the more sophisticated IL-1 and IL-6 asaays..most of these are general , easily found protocols..


Did you know that the original term for a neutrophil was a "microphage"?
