Monocytes are produced in the bone marrow and circulate in the bloodstream, acting as a mobile defense force against infections and other foreign substances. Once they detect a threat, they migrate to the tissues and organs where they transform into macrophages—a term used to describe their matured form.

Macrophages serve several important functions in the immune system. They contribute to inflammation, help coordinate immune responses, and play a role in tissue repair and remodeling. Macrophages are capable of recognizing foreign invaders and activating other immune cells to mount an effective defense. Additionally, monocytes can differentiate into dendritic cells, which are specialized antigen-presenting cells. Dendritic cells capture and process antigens, acting as messengers that alert the immune system to the presence of a threat. This process initiates adaptive immunity, where specific immune cells are activated to target and eliminate the identified pathogen.

Changes in monocyte levels can indicate certain health conditions. Elevated monocyte counts may be observed in infections, autoimmune diseases, and certain types of cancers. Decreased levels of monocytes can be associated with bone marrow disorders or specific infections.
