Histopathology of the digestive gland of the bivalve mollusk Crenomytilus grayanus (Dunker, 1853) from southwestern Peter the Great Bay, Sea of Japan

Histopathology of the digestive gland of the bivalve mollusk Crenomytilus grayanus (Dunker, 1853)... The histomorphology of the digestive gland of the bivalve mollusk Crenomytilus grayanus from Sivuchya Bay, which is located in the southwest of Peter the Great Bay and subjected to the effect of polluted waters of Tumannaya River, was studied. Pathological changes of the digestive tubules, channels, and connective tissue of the gland were recorded in all the mussels studied. The epithelium of the tubules and channels was characteristic with erosive disturbances and by heavy vacuolization of digestive cells; connective tissue of the gland was specified by cells with lipofuscin (granulocytomes) and by foci of cells necrosis and lysis. Nervous fibers running in the gland were swollen in some mollusks. Strongly basophilic spherical formations, presumably one of the development stages of a parasitic plasmodium, were found in the granulocytomes and among vesicular cells of connective tissue of all the mussels. It was concluded that pathological changes in digestive gland of Gray’s mussel might be caused by chronic pollution of the bay and by parasitic invasion. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Russian Journal of Marine Biology Springer Journals
