WHAT DOES MONOCYTE MEAN IN ENGLISH?

monocyte

Monocyte

Monocytes are a type of white blood cells. They are the largest of all leukocytes. They are part of the innate immune system of vertebrates including all mammals, birds, reptiles, and fish. They are amoeboid in shape, having clear cytoplasm. Monocytes have bean-shaped nuclei that are unilobar, which makes them one of the types of mononuclear leukocytes. Monocytes constitute 2% to 10% of all leukocytes in the human body. They play multiple roles in immune function. Such roles include: replenishing resident macrophages under normal states, and in response to inflammation signals, monocytes can move quickly to sites of infection in the tissues and divide/differentiate into macrophages and dendritic cells to elicit an immune response. Half of them are stored in the spleen. Monocytes are usually identified in stained smears by their large kidney shaped or notched nucleus. These change into macrophages after entering into the tissue spaces.

Definition of monocyte in the English dictionary
