In the spiny lobster (Panulirus interruptus) the prophenoloxidase is located in plasma not in haemocytes.
In the spiny lobster (Panulirus interruptus), unlike other crustaceans most of the prophenoloxidase (proPO) was detected in cell-free plasma (86.3%). In spite of its location, lobster proPOExpand

Pond shutdown as a strategy for preventing outbreaks of white spot disease in shrimp farms in Mexico
Pond shutdown is a strategy used to eliminate residual pathogens. For 2005–2011, we analysed the relationship between the prevalence of white spot disease (WSD) and the length of pond shutdown (LPS)Expand
