Related Product Information for CytoSelect 96-well Phagocytosis Assay (Zymosan) assay kit

   Background/Introduction: In mammals, phagocytosis by phagocytes (e.g., macrophages, dendritic cells, and neutrophils) is essential for a variety of biological events, including tissue remodeling and the continuous clearance of dying cells. Furthermore, phagocytosis represents an early and crucial event in triggering host defenses against invading pathogens. Phagocytosis comprises a series of events, starting with the binding and recognition of particles by cell surface receptors, followed by the formation of actin-rich membrane extensions around the particle. Fusion of the membrane extensions results in phagosome formation, which precedes phagosome maturation into a phagolysosome. Pathogens inside the phagolysosome are destroyed by lowered pH, hydrolysis, and radical attack (Figure 1). These early events that are mediated by the innate immune system are critical for host survival. As a result of this process, pathogen-derived molecules can be presented at the cell surface (antigen presentation), allowing the induction of acquired immunity. Zymosan (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) is prepared from yeast cell wall and consists of protein-carbohydrate complexes. Zymosan is a commonly used pathogen in phagocytosis assays. Typically, engulfed Zymosan particles are manually counted (expressed as a phagocytosis index or engulfed particles per phagocyte). This manual counting method is quite cumbersome, time-consuming, and difficult when testing a large number of samples. CytoSelect™ 96-well Phagocytosis Assay (Zymosan) uses prelabeled Zymosan particles as a phagocytosis pathogen; however, it does not involve subjective manual counting of Zymosan particles inside cells. Instead external Zymosan particles are blocked before the colorimetric detection of engulfed particles (Figure 2). This format provides a quantitative, high-throughput method to accurately measure phagocytosis. The CytoSelect™ 96-well Phagocytosis Assay (Zymosan) provides a robust system for screening TLR ligands, phagocytosis activators or inhibitors. Each kit provides sufficient quantities to perform 96, 48, 24 tests in a 96, 48, 24-well plate, respectively.
