Figure 3

Binding and phagocytosis assay. Adherent GM-MØ were treated with cytochalasin D (A and B) to block internalization or vehicle control (DMSO, C and D) before incubation with biotinylated green fluorescent latex beads and labeling of extracellular beads with streptavidin-Texas Red. Images obtained by scanning cytometry show intracellular beads in green, while extracellular beads are in yellow (due to the colocalization of red and green fluorescence). Panels A and C depict the fluorescence images obtained by the scanning cytometer, while panels B and D depict the same images after automated segmenting and bead identification. Scale bars represent 20 μm.
