Abstract

Abstract Oyster granular amebocytes were characterized by electron microscopy to be of two types. Acidophiles contained relatively small, spherical, amorphous, osmiophilic cytoplasmic granules with a maximum dimension of 0.4–0.56 μ. Basophiles contained large, cytoplasmic granules, approximately 0.7–1.2 μ in diameter. The granules resembled hollow, spherical structures in which an outer membrane and a layer of closely associated granular material enclosed an electron-transparent interior.
