Phagocytosis of bacteria after exposure to macrophages or lymphocytes

Microbiologica 10(4): 417-420

Phagocytosis of bacteria after exposure to macrophages or lymphocytes

In our present study we have examined the phagocytosis by polynucleates towards bacteria exposed to macrophages or lymphocytes. Our results show that for almost all the bacterial strains, the contact with lymphocytes determines changes in hydrophobicity correlated to variations in the possibility of being phagocytized and of more significant intracellular killing with respect to bacteria treated with macrophages.
