An ultrastructural and cytochemical study of the interaction between latex particles and the haemocytes of the wax moth Galleria mellonella in vitro

Abstract

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)
