The uptake and subsequent actions of β-glucan on immune cells. β-glucans are captured by the macrophages via the Dectin-1 receptor with or without TLR-2/6. The large β-glucan molecules are then internalized and fragmented into smaller sized β-glucan fragments within the macrophages. They are carried to the marrow and endothelial reticular system and subsequently released. These small β-glucan fragments are eventually taken up by the circulating granulocytes, monocytes or macrophages via the complement receptor (CR)-3. The immune response will then be turned on, one of the actions is the phagocytosis of the monoclonal antibody tagged tumor cells.
