Abstract

Abstract Spherulocytes were purified from the haemolymph of two lepidopteran species, Heliothis virescens and Malacosoma disstria. Analysis by polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis revealed the presence of two to four major polypeptides of relatively low molecular weight in purified M. disstria cells and one or two in H. virescens spherulocytes. A sulphated glycosaminoglycan-like substance was extracted from the purified cells.
