Regarding Cryptococcus neoformans
Assertion: destroyed by phagocytosis
Reason: contain polysaccharide capsule
|A|| Both Assertion and Reason are true, and Reason is the correct explanation for Assertion|
|B||Both Assertion and Reason are true but Reason is not the correct explanation for Assertion|
|C||Assertion is true but Reason is false|
|D||Assertion is false but Reason is true|
a. Species that are too large for phagocytosis can be killed byextracellular factors released from phagocytes as well as by other componentsof the immune response.
b. Some species, notably Cryptococcus neoformans,prevent phagocytic uptake because theyare surrounded by a polysaccharide capsule.
