In a subtype of sea urchin coelomocyte
, independent contribution of the actin polymerization and myosin II activity to the retrograde flow has been demonstrated .
Paraptosis induced by several natural products such as coelomocyte
extracts, honokiol, gamma-Tocotrienol, curcumin, and berberine in anticancer treatment receives more and more attention in recent years [9-13].
Counting, and Bacterial Challenge
isolation, primary culture, and hydrogen peroxide exposure
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 role of opsonin in phagocytosis by coelomocytes
of earthworm Dendrobaena Veneta.
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).
