The stage at which phagocytosis can first be characterized in the embryos of the sea urchin Lytechinus variegatus was investigated by microinjecting the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae into its blastocoele. Secondary mesenchyme cells were first observed phagocytosing during the mid-gastrula stage. Subsequently, as the incubation time increased, the number of… CONTINUE READING
