Influence of Yersinia pseudotuberculosis on the Immunity of Echinoderms
The inoculation Y. pseudotuberculosis induced a defence reaction in two species of echinoderms. The main mechanisms of defence were the agglutination of bacterial cells by MBL, the phagocytosis of bacteria by the amoeboebocytes and lysis. At the same time, the bacteria suppressed the defence system of echinoderms by toxins.
