Hemocytes of freshwater mussel(Anodonta woodiana pacifica) after injured in mantle were extracted from adductor,and the phagocytic activity against bacterium Pseudomonas fluorescens during 0-25 days was studied in vitro assay. It was found that the granulocytes and agranulocytes of four type hemocytes had the ability of phagocytose.Phagocytic activity of hemocytes increased significantly from 10 days after mussel were injured, and came to the highest on 20 days, then reduced slowly. The serum… CONTINUE READING
