Description:Produced by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), this digitally-colorized scanning electron microscopic (SEM) image depicts a single dead yeast particle being phagocytized by a macrophage, which had been activated by the zymosan contained as a component of the yeast particle’s cell wall. Please see the Flickr link below for additional NIAID photomicrographs of various microbes.
Zymosan found on the surface of fungi, like yeast, is used in microbiologic settings to induce an inflammatory reaction under experimental conditions.
