Scanning electron micrograph showing a macrophage, a professional phagocyte of the innate immune system, ingesting IgG-coated latex beads. Phagocytosis involves initial receptor-mediated detection of the bead or ‘prey’. Membrane extensions next attach the bead to the cell surface and then, as shown, membrane is extruded to envelope and ingest the beads. Image courtesy of J. Yeo, A. Alexander, J. Stow and N. Hamilton. Image by Darren Brown, Stow Group, IMB.
