Caption: Macrophage engulfing bacteria, animation. Macrophages are cells of the body's immune system. They phagocytose and destroy pathogens, dead cells and cellular debris. Here, the macrophage (pink) is engulfing Streptococcus bacteria (purple), a process known as phagocytosis. The bacteria will then be destroyed. There are over 50 species of Streptococcus bacteria, some of which cause disease in humans.
