Agranulocytes and Granulocytes

Granulocytes are white blood cells that are present as granules in cytoplasm.

Types of Granulocytes

  • Eosinophils
  • Basophils
  • Neutrophils

The major difference between Granulocytes and Agranulocytes

  1. Granulocytes Cytoplasm Contains granules while Agranulocytes Cytoplasm  Does not contain granules

2. Granulocytes Originates from Bone marrow while Agranulocytes  Originates from Lymphoid

3. Granulocytes Lobes in Nucleus 5-Feb  while Agranulocytes Lobes in Nucleus  1                    

4. Granulocytes Classification Basophils, neutrophils, eosinophils while Agranulocytes Classification  Lymphocytes, macrophages, monocytes.

5. Granulocytes Involved in Innate immunity while Agranulocytes Involved in

Adaptive immunity.

6. Granulocytes Also known as Polymorphonuclear leukocytes while Agranulocytes  Also known as   Mononuclear leukocyte.s

7. Granulocytes % of leukocytes 65 while Agranulocytes % of leukocytes 35

Agranulocytes Function

Some of the main functions of agranulocytes include:

  • Activating other immune cells
  • Destroying old and damaged cells
