1%-3% wbc's, Bilobed nucleus w/ lg orange granules containing toxic proteins, inflammatory mediators,and digestive enzymes. FNX is destruction of lg eukaryotic pathogens such as worms and fungi. Found in higher #'s in spleen and bone marrow.
0.5%of wbc's, pale staining contricted nuclei w/ dark blue-black granules. FNX respond to lg eukaryotic pathogens and recruit other leukocytes. Cytoplasmic granules contain histamines,prostaglandins,and chemical mediators of the allergic response.
3%-7%wbc's, largest WBC;nuclei lg,ovoid, and often indented--no cytoplasmic granules visible. FNX phagocytosis, followed by final differentiation into macrophages and dendritic cells. Monocytes also secrete chemicalks that moderatwe the fnx's of the immune system.
20%-35%wbc's Small spherical cells with uniformly staining dark, round nuclei FNX is specific (acquired) immunity. 2 types of lymphs exist Tcells responsible for cell mediated immunity, B cells are responsible for humoral immunity.
