Descriptions

LP14539-8   Eosinophils
Eosinophil granulocytes, commonly referred to as eosinophils (from 'eosin (or acid)-loving' cells, hence the name) are white blood cells that appear brick-red when stained with eosin using the Romanowsky method. The red color is visible as small granules within the cellular cytoplasm. These granules contain histamine and proteins such as eosinophil peroxidase, RNase, DNases, lipase, plasminogen, and Major Basic Protein that are toxic to both pathogens and the host's tissues. Eosinophils persist in the circulation for 6-12 hours, and survive in the tissues for another 2-3 days if they aren't further stimulated. Eosinophils make up about 2.3% of the all white blood cells, and are about 10-12 micrometers in size. A key mediator in eosinophil activation is interleukin 5.
