Neutrophils are the first cells to get to the site of infection, they are professional phagocytes and ferocious eaters that rapidly engulf invaders.
Here is a video you can watch of a neutrophil chasing a bacteria.
This monocyte turned into a dendritic cell (DC) and doesn’t even know how it happened!
Many researchers isolate monocytes and then derive them into DCs to do studies on these cells. It is a common method followed by people studying DCs that need to generate some cells for their experiments.

Immune cells are our little internal warriors!
These two red blood cells (RBCs) fell in love! Red blood cells are found in the blood and therefore in the vein, get the joke? 😛
Do we know where do plasmacytoid dendritic cells (pDCs) come from? They may look like cDCs but they might have different ancestors!
Plasmacytoid dendritic cells (pDCs) are professional Type I IFN producers.
