Eosinophils

Definition

Eosinophils are granulocytes – with granules that are stainable by eosin – that develop during haematopoiesis in the bone marrow before entering the blood. Through the release of their cytotoxic granule cationic proteins, eosinophils contribute to defence against parasites and other infections. They also contribute to asthma pathogenesis and allergy responses.
