The axial organ of the sea star Asterias rubens is a primitive immune organ. In addition to T and B-like cells phagocytic cells were also identified. In this report we demonstrate that these cells can be identified using immunocytochemistry together with the mouse to human monoclonal antibody CD68 KP1, normally used as a macrophage marker.
