Botrylloides leachii has a great capacity for preventing hemolymph loss from injuries, with hemolymph loss stopped in less than 30 s by a combination of tissue contraction and hemocyte
aggregation (video 4, available online).
proliferation with focal thickening of the stroma was present among the digestive glands, the albumin glands and the ovo-testis (Fig.
differentiation in the hematopoietic organs of the silkworm, Bombyx mori: prohemocytes have the function of phagocytosis.
The herbicide pyrazosulfuron-ethyl did not present acute toxicity but reduced significantly the total hemocyte
count in shrimp.
2010): Class 0 = No infection observed; Class I = Light infection, few hemocytes
observed with 1-2 parasites; Class II = Moderate infection, large number of infected hemocytes
in the cytoplasm; and Class III = Heavy infection, widespread infection with numerous infected hemocytes
We also carried out a phylogenetic analysis of the putative amino acid sequences, confirming their similarity to their vertebrate counterparts, and studied the location of their mRNAs by in situ hybridization on hemocyte
pelleting by centrifugation at 5000 x g for 4 min.
Relationship between mitochondria-associated fluorescence and hemocyte
motility in Gromphadorhina portentosa.
The olive tail moment and percent tail DNA were not different for hemocyte
comets from the different treatments (Fig.
As the slugs age, morula-like amoebocytes appear in the circulatory system that are similar in morphology to a fatal hemocyte
neoplasia in the soft-shell clam, Mya arenaria (Mondy and Pierce, 2003).
Venom calreticulin from Costesia rubecula or Pteromalus puparum could inhibit host hemocyte
spreading and cellular encapsulation in vitro
Distinguishing muscle nuclei from hemocyte
and various parasite stage nuclei was difficult.
