Phagocytosis of the retinal pigment epithelium 4. selectivity of phagocytosis and microvilli of retinal pigment epithelium



Phagocytosis of the retinal pigment epithelium 4. selectivity of phagocytosis and microvilli of retinal pigment epithelium



Folia Ophthalmologica Japonica 36(6): 1216-1221



To clarify the phagocytotic selectivity of the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE), 3 kinds of polystyrene spheres, already proved to have different susceptibilities to phagocytosis by the RPE, were injected into the subretinal spaces of albino rats; the phagocytotic behavior of the RPE microvilli were then observed by scanning EM. The microvilli evidently changed their morphological appearance according to the physico-chemical nature of the phagocytized material, which was the morphological finding of selective phagocytosis.
