Ultrastructural and cytochemical studies on the blood cells of the sea squirt,Ciona intestinalis


The ultrastructure and cytochemistry of the stem cell and amoebocytic blood cells of the sea squirt,Ciona intestinalis, are described. The stem cells are characterised by a high nuclear: cytoplasmic ratio and an undifferentiated cytoplasm. In thin sections, four types of amoebocytes can be demonstrated: non-vacuolar and vacuolar hyaline amoebocytes… (More)
