... of microglial cells with Griffonia simplicifolia lectin (GSL) histochemistry revealed that photoreceptor cell death alerts microglia in the degenerating retina, leading to local proliferation, migration towards the injured outer nuclear layer (ONL), and enhanced phagocytosis of photoreceptor debris. During...

...Heidi K. Grønlien; Bjarne Hagen; Olav Sand SUMMARY Ciliates feed by phagocytosis. Some ciliate species, such as Tetrahymena vorax , are polymorphic, a strategy that provides more flexible food utilization. Cells of the microstomal morph of T. vorax feed on bacteria, organic particles and organic...
