MORPHOLOGICAL AND CYTOCHEMISTRY OBSERVATIONS IN BLOOD CELLS OF Salminus maxillosus Valenciennes, 1840 (CHARACIFORMES, CHARACIDAE). Rev. chil. anat. [online]. 2000, vol.18, n.2, pp. 245-250. ISSN 0716-9868. doi: 10.4067/S0716-98682000000200005.
The blood cells of fish Salminus maxillosus were studied by means of light microscopy and citochemistry techniques. For citochemistry analisis, we used specific methods for detection of 4 basic macromolecules types, that had different chemistry nature: carbohidrates, lipids, proteins enzimatics and structural. Cells that were differentiated were: erythrocytes, thrombocytes, monophils, lymphocytes, neutrophils type I and II and eosinophils. The thrombocytes, and neutrophils type I and II shows glicogen in the cytoplasm. The neutrophils type II revealed sudanophils and mieloperoxid positive granules and difuse weak reaction for proteins in the cytoplasm. The eosinophils shows strong reaction in cytoplasmic granules.
