Red and white corpuscles

White cells carry receptors that are capable of recognising endothelial
cells (after the correct stimulation) and pushing their way through the
endothelium in a process (if I remember correctly!) called extravasitation.
Red cells do not carry these receptors nor are capable of producing them (no
nucleus).
Most immunology text books should carry info on this process.
