Histo pathological effects induced in mytilus edulis by mytilicola intestinalis and the histochemistry of the copepod intestinal cells



Histo pathological effects induced in mytilus edulis by mytilicola intestinalis and the histochemistry of the copepod intestinal cells



Journal du Conseil Conseil International pour l'Exploration de la Mer 38(1): 6-11



Localized metaplastic changes in the gut epithelial cells of M. edulis were associated with the presence of the parasitic copepod, Mytilicola intestinalis. These changes involved replacement of the ciliated columnar cells by non-ciliated cuboidal cells. Experimental thermal stress induced a significant increase in the numbers of macrophages in the connective tissues of infected and uninfected mussels, but there was no evidence of any synergistic effect in infected hosts. A number of lysosomal hydrolases associated with the gut cells of the parasite were probably involved in intracellular digestion. M. intestinalis had no significant effect on the basic cellular functions in M. edulis.
