|PubMed Abstract||The phagocytosis of invading microorganisms by specialized blood cells is a crucial element of innate immunity in both mammals and insects. In this issue of Cell, Kocks et al. (2005) demonstrate that Eater, a scavenger receptor, plays an important role in the recognition and phagocytosis of bacteria in the fruit fly Drosophila.|
