The effect of selected basic dyes on the blood cells in particular the basophils of the pacific oyster crassostrea gigas

, : The effect of selected basic dyes on the blood cells in particular the basophils of the pacific oyster crassostrea gigas. Journal of Invertebrate Pathology 31(3): 313-323

Light microscopy and EM showed that the granular blood cells of Pacific oysters could absorb basic dyes from dye-coated plastic beads injected into the mantles. In doing so, the granular blood cells became altered morphologically and behaviorally. Oysters could also absorb the basic dye, toluidine blue O, in low concentration from sea water. This caused a shift in the blood cell levels of oysters, probably brought about by the absorption of toluidine blue O by granulocytes.
