    Granulocytes and plasmatocytes play important roles in clearing foreign objects in insects, but it is difficult to distinguish between them in immune reactions. Based on the hemocyte cell line SYSU-OfHe-C established at our lab, two cell sublines, SYSU-OfHe-C Granulocyte (Gr cells) and SYSU-OfHe-C Plasmatocyte (Pl cells), which possess the morphological characteristics of granulocytes and plasmatocytes, respectively, were established. Gr and Pl cells showed different behaviors in immune reactions, such as spreading, phagocytosis and encapsulation. Pl cells were easier to spread, but Gr cells tended to undergo aggregation, indicating that they may take different strategies to clear foreign objects. These results also suggested that granulocytes and plasmatocytes may express some different proteins. By comparing the gene expression in cells from the two sublines, 1662 differentially expressed genes were identified, and 13 out of 30 transmembrane proteins highly expressed in Pl cells (six) or Gr cells (seven) were further screened and confirmed by reverse-transcription polymerase chain reaction (PCR). Finally, three transmembrane genes specifically expressed in Pl cells and two transmembrane genes specifically expressed in Gr cells were screened out based on their expressions in immune reactions by quantitative PCR analysis. These genes may potentially be used as molecular markers to distinguish between granulocytes and plasmatocytes inOstrinia furnacalis, and further to clarify the functions of immune hemocytes in cellular immune reaction such as encapsulation and so on.
