  • Phagocytosis by hemolymph cells of the land slug, Incilaria fruhstorferi Collinge, were studied with the scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and the transmission electron microscopy (TEM). The fate of foreign materials, i.e., sheep red blood cells (SRBC) and latex beads, introduced into the hemocoel of the slug were followed. Certain hemocytes named as Type I cell were involved in spontaneous cyto-adherence while both Type II and III cells were not observed to adhere to foreign materials. SRBC… CONTINUE READING
