Macrophages Monitor Fluid Absorption

A mechanism is described by which sub-epithelial macrophages perform a quality check of fluids absorbed through colonic epithelial cells to avoid poisoning with fungi toxins. This mechanism involves macrophage balloon-like membrane protrusions inserted in between epithelial cells, which inflate depending on the amount of fungi metabolites present in the colon.
