Macrophage pseudopod extension occurs in two phases during FcγR-mediated frustrated phagocytosis and correlates with membrane and cytoskeleton dynamics.
(A) Spinning-disk confocal microscopy of a macrophage undergoing frustrated phagocytosis showing plasma membrane (PM-GFP, Upper) and F-actin (Ruby-Lifeact, Lower). A single confocal section at the glass interface is shown. Numbers indicate time in seconds (Movie S1). (Scale bar, 10 µm.) (B) Motility map of the cell in A showing protrusion velocity along the circumferential cell edge as a function of time. P1 and P2 indicate the motility phases before and following the transition, T, respectively. (C) Cell-contact area at the transition versus initial cell size on first contact with the opsonized surface. (D) Zoom from plasma membrane in A. Folds of plasma membrane (bright puncta visible in the first image) are exhausted before the transition. (E) Three-dimensional reconstruction of a spinning-disk microscopy time series during frustrated phagocytosis. Dorsal membrane folds (clearly visible at 0 s) are exhausted before the transition (at 120 s). Subsequently, ruffles and folds (indicated by the white arrow) recover on the cell surface.
