The rainbow trout monocyte/macrophage-like cell line, RTS11, has been used to study homotypic aggregation (HA), which is a well-studied feature of leucocytes in mammals but less understood in fish. HA is the aggregation of cells of the same cell type. RTS11 underwent HA in response to polyinosinic:cytidylic acid (poly IC), polyadenylic acid (poly A… CONTINUE READING
