    • Monocytes: macrophage
    • Lymphocytes: B cell, T cell
    • Granulocytes: neutrophil, eosinophil, basophil
  2. Macrophage (monocytes)
    Role: phagocytose debris and microorganisms; amoeboid motility, chemotaxis
  3. B cell (lymphocytes)
    Role: mature into plasma cell and produce antibodies
  4. T cell (lymphocytes)
    Role: kill virus-infected cells, tumor cells, and reject tissue grafts; also control immune response
  5. Neutrophil (granulocytes)
    Role: phagocytose bacteria resulting in pus; amoeboid motility; chemotaxis
  6. Eosinophil (granulocytes)
    Role: destroy parasites; allergic reactions
  7. Basophil (granulocytes)
    Role: store and release histamine; allergic reactions
