Image of the Month
Macrophages are specialized phagocytic cells of the innate immune system that remove diseased cells and non-self objects from the body and serve as antigen-presenting cells. This macrophage (red) is engulfing a Mycobacterium tuberculosis pathogen (yellow). The image was captured by Volker Brinkmann of Berlin’s Max Planck Institute for Infection Biology using a Zeiss field emission scanning electron microscope (FE-SEM).
