Dynamics of oxyradical burst from single human neutrophils stimulated by opsonized zymosan was visualized by using an ultrasensitive video intensifier microscopy in the presence of chemiluminescence probe. Luminol-dependent photonic burst activities were clearly corresponding to the distribution of zymosan-treated neutrophils. Heterogeneity of photon-bursting period and the maximum photonic intensity among reactive cells was demonstrated. This may reflect functional heterogeneity of the ability to release oxyradicals among neutrophils.
