  • Phagocytosis
    • Attraction - Phagocytes are attracted to pathogen by chemicals
      • Phagocytes  attach to pathogens
        • Bacteria engulfed by phagocyte into a phagosome
          • Lysosome containing hydrolytic enzymes fuse to phagosome
            • Pathogen digested by enzymes
              • Indigestible material released via exocytosis
                • Phagocyte becomes an ANTIGEN PRESENTING CELL for that antigen.
