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


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)
