Fig. 27. Monolayer epithelial cell sheets formed on the hemocyte layers. The outer epithelial cells (e) adhered to the hemocyte layers (h) at the basal side, and possessed microvilli (arrowheads) on the apical side - A, a relatively thick monolayer of the epithelial cells at the central part of the cell sheet. B - the peripheral part of the epithelial cell sheet. The epithelial cells became flattened, and acellular spaces often occurred between hemocyte layers and the epithelial sheet. C - an extremely flattened epithelial cells at the margin of the cell sheet. p - bottom of the plastic well. Scale bars - 5 μm.
