The rejection of xenogeneic grafts in marine worms of the genus Lineus (Nemertea) gives evidence for the occurrence of immune mechanisms in these invertebrates. First, second-set response is anamnestic with a three-month memory component. Second, the accelerated rejection of second-set grafts occurs anywhere in the body of the recipient, that is to say it is systemic. Third, the anamnestic response is species-specific since it takes place only when second grafts are from donors of the same… CONTINUE READING
