Musa, M and Rowley, D. (1990) Heterogeneity of Mouse Macrophages in Terms of Their Bactericidal Activity. Pertanika, 13 (2). pp. 195-203.
These studies confirm that not all cells in a macrophage population express efective bactericidal functions. Two subsets of macrophages with cell-surface markers recognized by two monoclonal antibodies, designated M43 and 1\157 were shown to be involved in the bacteicidal activity of a macrophage population. B)' indirect radio immunoassay (RIA), it was found that these two subset markers were expressed more on the 5tu/ace of activated manipulates than on normal cells. It seems possible that these two markers may se11Je as markers for macrophage activation in terms of enhanced bactericidal activity.
