Immunoreactive platelet-derived growth factor-AB and transforming growth factor-β1 were demonstrated in invertebrate and vertebrate immunocytes by an immunocytochemical procedure. These factors are only present in phagocytic cells among invertebrate immunocytes, whereas in vertebrate immunocytes they are found in monocytes, granulocytes, lymphocytes, thrombocytes and platelets. These results, in agreement with previous reports, represent further evidence in favour of the hypothesis that Nature… CONTINUE READING
