Ultrastructure of the Blood System in the Phoronid Phoronopsis harmeri Pixell, 1912: 1. Capillaries

Ultrastructure of the Blood System in the Phoronid Phoronopsis harmeri Pixell, 1912: 1. Capillaries Four types of blood capillaries of the phoronid Phoronopsis harmeri are described. These are capillaries of the tentacles, of the body, of the stomach plexus, and of the vasoperitoneal tissue. The wall of capillary consists of cells of the coelomic lining, a layer of extracellular matrix, and separate endothelial cells. Myoepithelial coelomic cells of tentacle capillaries contain cross-striated fibers. In capillaries of the body and the stomach plexus, the myofilaments are smooth. In the cells of the wall of vasoperitoneal tissue capillaries, myofilaments are lacking. The cells of the vessel wall of the tentacles, the body, and the vasoperitoneal tissue bear a single cilium. The cells of capillaries of the stomach plexus lack a cilium. The ultrastructure of erythrocytes and amebocytes is described. In the cytoplasm of erythrocytes, there is a basal body. It is assumed that erythrocytes originated from the ciliary cells of the wall of the blood vessels. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Russian Journal of Marine Biology Springer Journals
