Quick Reference

Process proposed to occur as the membrane of a phagocyte enfolds the particle being engulfed. A progressive adhesive interaction is postulated and supported by the observation that capped B-lymphocytes are only partially internalized, whereas those with a uniform opsonizing coat of the Fc moieties of anti-IgG are fully engulfed.
