On the other hand, Liebman (1950) suggests that NPs in Arbacia punctulata are derived from coelomocytes. This is an intriguing idea, since both cellular populations produce and contain major yolk protein (MYP; Unuma et al., 2001; Brooks and Wessel, 2002), but it lacks any obvious structural evidence for coelomocyte transfer to the germinal epithelium of either sex.
In agreement with this view, TNF-[alpha]-like molecules are involved in insect encapsulation (Franchini et at., 1996), and 1L-1-like molecules have been shown to stimulate echinoderm coelomocyte aggregation, which occurs in encapsulation (Beck and Habicht, 1991).
The coelomocytes cells that are found within the pseudocoelom perform an immune surveillance function for the animal.
Moreover, IL-1 stimulates phagocytosis and the proliferation of coelomocytes in invertebrate systems (Beck and Habicht, 1991).
