Abstract

Peritoneal rat macrophages obtained after thioglycollate stimulation are known to express C3b receptors mediating adsorbtion and ingestion of bacteria (1,2). It was also demonstrated that after one or two days in culture, the macrophages express functionnal Fc receptors able to mediate the internalization of antibodies coated bacteria.
