Term Information [More information on respiratory burst after phagocytosis]

Accession
GO:0045728
Name
respiratory burst after phagocytosis
Ontology
biological_process
Synonyms
metabolic burst after phagocytosis, oxidative burst after phagocytosis
Definition
A phase of elevated metabolic activity, during which oxygen consumption increases, that occurs in neutrophils, monocytes, and macrophages shortly after phagocytosing material. An enhanced uptake of oxygen leads to the production, by an NADH dependent system, of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2), superoxide anions and hydroxyl radicals, which play a part in microbiocidal activity.
