Visceral organs of ectothermic vertebrates harbour melanin-containing leukocytes termed melanomacrophages. These cells are thought to participate in immune reactions and free-radical trapping. In teleosts, the melanin-producing ability of melanomacrophages has hitherto not been confirmed by molecular techniques. Here, a leukocyte marker and the apparatus for melanosome production and transport were investigated in an Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar) pronephros-derived mononuclear leukocyte (SHK-1… CONTINUE READING
