Which type of white blood cells are concerned with the release of histamine and the natural anticoagulant heparin?

  • Neutrophils

  • Basophils

  • Eosinophils

  • Monocytes

Answer

B.

Basophils

The basophils are probably like mast cells connective tissue. They release heparin, histamine and serotonin. Their nucleus is usually three-lobed and their granules take basic stain strongly.

Monocytes are largest of all types of leucocytes.Their nucleus is bean-shaped.They are motile and phagocytic in nature. They engulf bacteria and cellular debris.Generally, they will change into macrophages after entering tissue spaces.
