Bacterial phagocytosis is a cardinal function of phagocytes. We describe a simple procedure to easily quantify this function using fluoresceinated bacteria. Non-ingested bacteria and those adsorbed to the cell membrane are eliminated by an enzymatic procedure. Only macrophages with ingested fluorescent bacteria are detected, thereby permi...More
