Most effective bacterial system within phagocytes is- (LQ)



A Lysozyme mediated

B Lactoferrin mediated

C Reactive oxygen metabolite mediated

D Cationic basic protein mediated

Ans. C i.e. Reactive oxygen metabolite mediated [Ref' Robbins 8th/e p. 53]

Microbial killing (bactericidal activity) is largely mediated by oxygen dependent mechanisms. The most effective/ efficient bactericidal system within phagocytes is the oxygen dependent (H2O2-MPO-Halide system that mediates bacterial killing by the generation of HOCI with the help of myeloperoxidase and H2O2
