Spreading of Macrophages on Glass and its Relation to Recognition and the Cell Coat
There is a layer of material on the outside of the cell membrane of many cells, largely composed of carbohydrate and demonstrable, sometimes by conventional E. M. techniques (Yamada 1955) and often by specialized E.M. cytochemical techniques. This layer has been called the “glycocalyx” (Bennett 1963) or cell coat (Rambourg and Leblond 1967). In the amoeba such a coat has been shown to play an important part in the first stage of phagocytosis and therefore must be involved in the recognition of foreign material (Brandt and Pappas 1960).
