Flow cytometric and light microscopic identification of hemocyte subpopulations in Modiolus kurilensis (Bernard, 1983) (Bivalvia: Mytilidae)

Abstract

Flow cytometry using forward and side light scattering identified three cell subpopulations in the hemolymph of Modiolus kurilensis (Mytilidae). Light microscopic data indicated that they correspond to three hemocyte morphotypes: R1, hemoblasts and agranulocytes (hyalinocytes); R2, semigranulocytes; and R3, granulocytes. The hemoblasts, agranulocytes, and… (More)
