Leukocytes: Extracellular Killing 3 Cell Types That Kill Extracellularly: ________ _________ lymphocytes (NK cells) Secrete toxins onto surface of virally infected cells & tumors. Differentiate normal body cells because they have membrane proteins similar to the NK cells. ___________ Mainly attack parasitic worms by attaching to their surface. Secrete toxins that weaken or kill worm. Elevated eosinophil levels, is often indicative of a helminth ( parasitic worm) infection. – ___________ Can create the active ingredient in bleach to kill nearby microbes. Fibers called neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs) can ensnare and kill bacteria and fungi. Secrete antimicrobial proteins.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
