Light and electron microscopical studies were carried out to characterize the hemocytes of the oyster, Crassostrea ariakensis. Three types of hemocytes were recognized: granulocytes, large hyalinocytes and small hyalinocytes. The large hyalinocytes and small hyalinocytes were agranular cells. The large hyalinocytes presented thin cytoplasm and high nucleus: cytoplasm ratios. The small hyalinocytes were the most homogeneous in shape and showed round or oval. They have the highest nucleus… CONTINUE READING
