Studies on lymphoid organ spheroid (LOS) cells of Penaeus monodon were undertaken. Phenoloxidase and peroxidase assays showed that LOS cells have characteristics similar to semi-granular and, in particular, large granular haemocytes. The mean percentage of LOS cells positive for phenoloxidase and peroxidase was 85 +/- 23 and 82 +/- 23%, respectively. There was no significant difference between the sites of phenoloxidase and peroxidase activity in LOS cells (t = 1.617, df = 29, p > 0.05). The… CONTINUE READING
