Figure 2b presents a section of a similar region of the cephalopedal mass of a one-week old infected mollusk, with disorganization of the fibrous muscular structure of the foot, reduction of the mucous secretory cells, and many granuloma-like structures composed of hemocyte infiltration, but staining with Gomori's trichrome did revealed no collagen deposition or a small quantity of it in these structures around the larvae.
In marine bivalves, hemocytes can be found in tissues because had an open circulatory system (Beninger & Le Pennec, 2006), and some authors have found differences at hemocytes count only in tissue and not in hemolymph (Cochennec-Laureau et al., 2003).
ECM genes are highly expressed in the mantle (outer and inner parts), digestive gland, female gonad, gills, adductor muscle, hemocytes, and labial palps [25].
The JNK pathway also regulates the expression of HPX2, NOX5, and TEP1 in hemocytes that promote TEP1-mediated lysis.
While the exact origin of the totipotent stemlike cells responsible for WBR remains unknown, it has been reported that even though they will develop a regeneration niche within the vascular system, they are not part of the circulating blood cells (hemocytes) in uninjured colonies but rather appear to migrate from the vascular lining into the vascular system after injury (Rinkevich et al., 2010).

mori lebocin 3 and lebocin 4 were showed to be induced in the fat body and hemocytes by lipopolysaccharide (LPS) [21].
We have also seen a proliferation of hemocytes, accumulation and cell grouping in treated insects which induced some semblance coagulation of the hemolymph in Locusta migratoria, in contrast to what was observed by Halouane [5] who tested Metharhizium anisopliae on Shistocerca gregaria and Adama Coulibaly [3] have tested the effect of Beauveria bassiana and Metharhizium flavoviride on Anacridium aegeptium and noted a decrease in the concentration of hemocytes.
The results of real-time quantitative PCR (qRT-PCR) showed that this gene was highly expressed in fat body, low expressed in hemocytes and midgut, and not expressed in epidermis.
Induction of transcripts encoding the antimicrobial peptides virescein, heliomicin, heliocin, gloverin, and Hv-3-Tox, in the major immuneresponsive tissues of the fat bodies and hemocytes, by bacterial infection is reported here.
