Clearance and subsequent localisation of a range of materials, including colloidal carbon, latex beads, sheep erythrocytes, bacteria and dextran were followed in the lesser spotted dogfish, Scyliorhinus canicula. It was found that two populations of peripheral blood leucocytes — monocytes and thrombocytes, but not granulocytes — were involved in clearance(More)
The plasmatocytes are the major phagocytic blood-cell type in the haemolymph of the wax-moth, Galleria mellonella. In the present study, these cells were allowed to attach to tissue culture dishes for 1 h, rinsed and then incubated with latex beads for up to 72 h. These cells were then fixed for routine transmission electron microscopy and acid phosphatase(More)
Light and electron-microscopic observations of the blood cells (haemocytes) of the stick insect Clitumnus extradentatus in vitro showed that two morphologically distinct cell types, the cystocytes and granular cells are involved in haemolymph coagulation. Both these cell types contain a variable number of electron-dense granules which upon release cause(More)
The ultrastructure and cytochemistry of the stem cell and amoebocytic blood cells of the sea squirt,Ciona intestinalis, are described. The stem cells are characterised by a high nuclear: cytoplasmic ratio and an undifferentiated cytoplasm. In thin sections, four types of amoebocytes can be demonstrated: non-vacuolar and vacuolar hyaline amoebocytes,(More)
The blood of the dogfish, S. canicula, contains several types of leucocytes, namely thrombocytes, monocytes, lymphocytes and four populations of granulocytes. Three of these granulocyte types, G1, G3 and G4, are eosinophilic while G2 is heterophilic/neutrophilic. All of the leucocyte types, with the exception of G2 granulocytes and monocytes, can be(More)
Blood from larval lampreys (ammocoetes) contains a small number of eosinophilic granulocytes which are formed in the protospleen and kidney. Both immature and mature forms of this cell type are present in the blood and these are easily identified from other cell types due to the prominent eosinophilic granules that fill the cytoplasm. Ultrastructurally,(More)
