The lepidopteran hematopoietic process is poorly understood. We therefore examined the fundamental properties of hematopoiesis in the silkworm Bombyx mori using hematopoietic organ culture. In a medium containing larval plasma taken from the fourth day of the final larval stadium, over 50,000 hemocytes per hematopoietic organ were discharged within 48 h, with the number of cells comprising the hematopoietic organ simultaneously increasing from approximately 20,000 to 40,000. However, in the… CONTINUE READING
