The role of exocytosis in the cellular defence reactions of arthropods was investigated using in vitro cultures of isolated haemocytes (blood cells) from the freshwater crayfish Pacifastacus leniusculus, and the shore crab Carcinus maenas. In both species, activated lysates of those cell types that contain the prophenoloxidase activating system (granular cells of crab and crayfish and semigranular cells of crayfish) were found to induce degranulation (exocytosis) of semigranular and granular… CONTINUE READING
