Morphology of hemocytes from the freshwater prawn Macrobrachium rosenbergii



Morphology of hemocytes from the freshwater prawn Macrobrachium rosenbergii



Journal Of Morphology. 234(2): 147-153,.



Using morphological criteria, we identified three types of blood cells in the freshwater prawn Macrobrachium rosenbergii. Hyaline hemocytes, the most abundant type, have few large cytoplasmic granules, a large nucleocytoplasmic ratio, and lyse spontaneously in the absence of anticoagulant. Granular hemocytes are heterogeneous in size and in density of their granules. They are phagocytic and readily spread on substrates. The third type of hemocytes, identified as undifferentiated hemocytes, are the least abundant. The hemocytes of this economically relevant crustacean are compared with blood cells of other decapods.
