Basophils are among the several types of leukocyte you have in your body. These blood cells make up less than 1% of every one of your flowing white blood cells and are the least abundant in all creatures. Basophils are a part of your immune system and are created within your bone marrow. There are 5 type of white blood cells in your body, called leukocytes. White blood cells are made inside your bone marrow and can be found in your blood and lymph tissues. Leukocyte aid your body eliminate infections and diseases. Basophils were first identified in 1879 by researcher Paul Ehrlich. Since basophils aren't as plentiful as other blood cells in human beings, scientists at the time thought that they really did not have much importance. These leukocyte are mononuclear cells, so they have one rounded nucleus. Basophils are granulocytes, or leukocyte that have granules, or small particles, affixed to them. Basophils are the only leukocyte flowing around your body which contain histamine. Research now shows that basophils function similarly to mast cells. These are white blood cells that are found in the connective tissues throughout your body. Once histamine is released into your bloodstream, it can activate symptoms in a number of places. When your body has an allergy to something, basophils are contacted to respond to the affected or irritated part of the body. While these white blood cells are generally known for triggering sensitive responses in people, another function of basophils is to assist protect the body.
