Blue mussel Mytilus edulis were infected by Mytilicola intestinalis in a full factorial experimental design combining the following treatments:
Mytilicola infection treatment (M_infect: infected with Mytilicola, M_control: not infected with Mytilicola)
Vibrio infection treatment (V_bath: bathing challenge, V_inject: injection challenge, V_control: no vibrio infection)
Temperature treatment (values 17: ambient, 21: elevated)
Response variables were:
composition of hemolymph cell types (granulocytes, hyalinocytes, blast-like cells)
phagocytosis activity of each cell type
Vibrio load in the hemolymph measured as colony forming units on TCBS agar in 5 µl of hemolmyph after 24h of growth at room temperature.
