Abstract:The peripheral blood cells of cultured Schizothorax prenanti were morphologically described. On the stained smears, five major cell types were recognized: erythrocytes, thrombocytes, lymphocytes, neutrophils, and monocytes. Some immature blood cells and direct dividing of erythrocytes could also be observed, while eosinophils and basophils were not found. In addition, three phases of neutrophils were recognized in blood smears: the shape of immature neutrophils were round or nearly round, the pale pink and rich cytoplasm contained a lot of red small particles, and the nucleui were kidney-shaped; the nuclei of neutrophils presented "S" or "C" shapes; segmented neutrophilic granulocytes were abundant, and they were ellipses, and the lobated nuclei were divided into at least two segments, even over five or six. The thrombocytes aggregated together with one or more, and were of several shapes: spherical, nearly spherical, pear shaped, elliptical, and rod-shaped, to name a few. Among peripheral blood cells, the size of the thrombocytes was the smallest while the monocytes were the largest. Monocytes were the most numerous and thrombocytes the least.
